View Full Version : INI Files

05-29-2002, 05:50 PM
I am making a basic MSI file that creates two ini files. ODBCINST.INI and CONTROL.INI. While the ODBCINST.INI file is created correctly the CONTROL.INI file is not. If I rename CONTROL.INI to TEST.INI inside the MSI project, TEST.INI is created correctly. Is "CONTROL.INI" reserved by Admin Studio somehow?

CONTROL.INI is not reserved word in Adminstudio to create INI file. I just tried on sample project and it works. If possible, please send me your ism file to me (jigard@installshield.com).

Thanks for the info. It turns out that it wont create CONTROL.INI only on NT machines (Yes we have legacy 16 bit apps that need to to run on NT). CONTROL.INI is created fine under other non NT operating systems. Were you using NT?
