I have to create a patch thru Patch design view in installshield 2008 for my older installer(It was also in installshield

2008).
I am facing some problem in it.
How can i apply the changes in the INI files (thru the patch)?
There are two types of INI files that i have to modify thru the patch:
1. INI files that are created\modified thru the "INI file changes" view of InstallShield 2008 in my previous installer.
2. INI files that are just deployed by the previous installer.

A patch is just a way to package an upgrade, usually a minor upgrade. You might start by creating your upgrade as a full installer---defining a minor upgrade item in the Upgrades view so InstallShield can perform upgrade validation on it---verifying that it works. Afterward, it should be safe to specify the before-and-after databases in the Patch Design view.
