hi,
i need to create a new screen which will ask the user some values during installation process and this value must be written into a file. can anyone hel p me on how to do it .

what entry should be there in the file so that the entry taken from the user during installation is over written?

thanks in advance,
Anup

What type of project are you using (MSI or InstallScript)? And is the text file in any specific format (INI, XML) or just a plain file?

If we are talking about basic MSI, the simplest option is to use the VB scripting file system objects. That'll let you read and write anything you want but you are responsible for the validity of what gets written.
