Is there some way to direct Installshield to force all users to read write the same ini file without elevating all privileges? My application uses a seperate ini in the app.path directory to validate registration of the product and to save preferences for the app. Vista creates new ini files for every user in the Virtual Store causing each user to have to setup their own preferences.

I have a similar problem with vista.

Applications I wish to install have default INI files. If the ini file is modified in anyway a personalised copy will be made and a new install will not update this personal copy. This may cause major problems for my applications and customers.

I have consider giving each new ini file a different name but although this may work in most cases it is not going to work if by chance somebody has created a file of the same name.

I also need to know if there is a way to force the sharing of an INI file or at least force the replacement of personallised ones.
