Hi,

on my Windows7-system and on my W-XP-system, AppDeploy Repackager 1.2 does not handle files ending with ini, e.g. test.ini . These files are not copied. They are not listed in the XML-File. They are not part of the MSI-file.

What can I do?

(The question was mentioned 2009 in  http://www.itninja.com/question/ini-files-not-copied-with-appdeploy but the answer does not help)

Thanks,

Thomas

Check your exclusion list. During the repackaging process (after the second snapshot) you are shown a list of files that were excluded and then registry entries that were excluded). If the file is changed, but not present the most likely reason would be that it was inadvertently excluded from the package. If you see it on the right side of the display (excluded files), select it and press the arrow to move it to the left side (included files).

Hi bkelly,

no, thats not the problem.

I have a tiny scenario:

1.) Creating c:\temp (which is empty)

2) Scanning only c:\test (nothing else)
(Neither C:\ nor c:\temp is in the list of expluded files. I only used the standard exclusion list)

3) Adding manually c:\test\test.ini and c:\test\test.ini1 with a small content.

4) Scanning. ApplDeploy says: Files scanned: 2 !!!

5.) C:\test\test.ini1 is available, c:\test\test.ini is NOT available. The right windows (excluded file list) is empty.

Would somebody try this tiny example?

Thanks, Thomas

  • c:/temp is likely excluded by default. It could be a bug, but I've not heard it reported before. I'll try this when I can make the time, but to be honest if it is reproducible I'm not sure when the next version of this tool will be released with a fix.
