Hello folks,

I need to edit a row in the tables which points to an ini file...However, it's blued out and it won't let me edit it...

Is there any way for me to make it editable?

Thanks in advance...

Clearly some access is being denied. You need to determine what that access is, though.

I am just looking at the the MSI database table...How would I check that access, VBScab?

As I intimated, that depends on what the access being denied is. Does the INI file has its read-only file attribute set? Is there an error in the INIFile table entries (validating the MSI will highlight that). Remember that some apps use INI files which aren't in classic INI file format.

This might be better...

As you can see, the blued out sections are the ones I cannot edit...What do you mean by access? Do you mean permissions on the system?

Soooooooooooooooo.....not The INIFile table, but the File table.....

The blued-out section is merely showing you the paths as the MSI resolves them. You cannot edit the items in that column. If you want to change the target path, use the GUI. You'll probably find it simpler using the 'Installation Expert/Files' view to remove the file and add it back in the location you want.

So there is absolutely no way you can edit them?

You change the "blue" field by editing directory reference for the file's Component (table entry) or Directory table entry depending on... ;)
