Article ID: Q105665

SUMMARY


The STFSETUP.IN_ file is created by the Setup Wizard and is used while your application is being installed on a user's computer. This file includes a command called CreateIniKeyValue that you can use to specify custom entries in the application's .INI file.

MORE INFORMATION


You can use the CreateIniKeyValue command to add or modify entries in the application's .INI file. For example, you may want to modify the ISAM section in your application's .INI file. You can use the CreateIniKeyValue command to modify the ISAM section of the application's .INI file to reflect the location specified by the user during the installation process.

The following is a sample entry that will modify the location of the PDX110.DLL file that might be installed for the Paradox ISAM dynamic-link library. Note that this is the [INI File] section of the STFSETUP.IN_ file:

NOTE: In the following example, an underscore (_) is used as a line- continuation character. Remove the underscore when re-creating this example.

   [INI File]
   CreateIniKeyValue, $(WindowsPath)$(IniFileName), "Installable ISAMs",_
                  "Paradox 3.X", $(SystemPath)"PDX110.DLL", O
   Exit

Note that there are several locations in the STFSETUP.IN_ file that already use the CreateIniKeyValue command. REFERENCES
