I have created a response file (.ISS) for a silent installation. In the install there are two dialog boxes
which records the following in the .ISS file

[RemoteNodeDlg-0]
NumRemoteNodes=1
RemoteNode0=MYSERVER01

[NETWORNODENAME-0]
NODENAME=MYNODE01
Result=1

I want to be able to change the values of RemoteNode0 and NODENAME without editing the .ISS file as i may not have write access to it during installation on production machines.

Can i use variable names in the .ISS files to assign the values to RemoteNode0 and NODENAME at runtime ? IF so, HOW ?

This is a third party application, so i cannot change the setup.

Thanks,
Rakesh
