Hi all,

I am working on a package where I need to drop the ini under User Profile. How can I use the active setup here . Please guide me, What should my stubpath be??

If the package does just drop the ini in the userprofile in an existing folder and nothing else you have a problem. An ini-entry can't be keyfile for a component so there's no way to leverage the selfhealing that active setup depends on.

just create an msi with a simple component that makes a dummy entry in the userprofile (Reg) as keyfile for your component. Add the ini info to that component and use the productcode for the activesetup registry entry. Windows will do the distribution of the ini to all other users login in to a machine where the msi is installed.

Thanks, I resolved it, by adding the active setup to MSI, and made the STUBPATH run the batch file which copies the file to the User Profile.
