View Full Version : Ini file modifications

I'm maintaining an existing msi install in ISX where we modify 160 entries in an .ini file. For some reason we replicated the same ini file in the INI file view 160 times (each time the same file name has been allocated a different string number).

Each modification in the file is to a different value in the same section of the ini file. This means the string table has to hold the same ini file name 160 times, plus the same section name 160 times.

Is there any good reason for somebody setting the install up this way or can I just merge all the duplicate entries into one (and delete the 318 duplicated entries in the string table)?

Thanks

Yes, it seems you should be able to consolidate all the INI entries to point to the same string-table entry.
