Recently i worked on one application. The application is setup capture application. I have to capture some actions( like installing ActiceX and some components) when i launch one particular URL.
To give some breif on this,
There is a URL when we launch that, it directly should navigate to some login screen. But first when i launch that URL it prompts to install some ActiveX and end point components at runtime.
So here the requirement is, When user launches the URL it should redirect to Login screen and no prompts should be appear for the user.
I captured those actions and installed the captured msi on testing machine. After installing the my msi URL is directly going to the login screen and working fine.

The problem is,
When i logoff and login it will through an error message that some .ini file is not accessible or not found in the installation directory.
Actually that ini was there in the installation directory after installing the application, the thing is when you launch that URL, automatically this ini file changes its attributes to hidden and system protected.

To fix this issue, i deleted ini file from package and again imported. And also i tried adding ini file as a normal file.
Those didnt work.

Kindly let me know how can i proceed and fix the issue.

It sounds to me like the application is changing the attributes. If that proves to be the case, you will probably want to send a strongly-worded email to the vendor, right after writing a batch file/script to wrap the launch, such that the attributes get set/reset the way they should be.

Does this happen with the vendors native installer run manually?
