    Patch Maker installation directory from INI file

    Hi,

    i am testing Patch Maker and i am very impressed. One problem i cannot solve: The installation directory to be selected on the Wizard Options tab optionally should be read from an INI file, which is saved in the Windows directory of the target system (source: Patch Maker Help). I didn't succeed trying this in different ways. The wizard running on the target system allways shows the entry from the "Default" data field, not from the INI file, and the patch fails.

    Is this a restriction of the unregistered version 1.2g i downloaded actually?

    Or can someone give instructions how to make correct entries for the option "get it from .ini file"?

    Thanks for any help. If this last problem is solved, i can use Patch Maker's executable to realize my idea of an WebUpdate inside my application.

    Does this installation directory exist on your hard drive? If it doesn't exist, Patch Maker displays the default directory.

    Odd... I've just tried with a .INI file in c:\windows and that works fine. It's very easy, you have to enter the name of the INI file in the File box, e.g. YourFile.ini, the name of the section in the Section box, e.g. YourSection, and the name of the entry to read the directory from in the Entry box, e.g. InstallDir.

    What's the content of your INI file?

    I got it: I used square brackets "[YourSection]" instead of "YourSection" in the Section field. Now it works fine.

    Thanks for your support.
