I have a query regarding a particular package which connects to a server and stores log files in several location underC:\Program files\

I have done a setupcapture using wise package studio done a post capture created a wsi and msi.

I have installed the application and launched it from C:\Program File\ folder since teh application has no shortcut.

When the application launches it does not connect to the server and gives a default ip of

I fill in the server details and all the links one of which is

web explorer: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IExplore.exe

and also all the other locations where the log files save such as C:\Program Files\

After that I go to the registry and try to export the particular registry keys and include it in my package and compile the wsi.

The next time i install and launch the msi all the server and log file locations show fine.

However i do not know where the C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IExplore.exe is reflected in the registry and could not export it hence it comes up as blank.

How do i resolve this issue.

Besides this there is one sap path under C:\Program files\ sap\.... the location of which I cannot find in the registry to export it and add it to my package.

Maybe it's not in the registry but in a file like an ini file.

I would install Installwatch
Install your MSI
Make a snpshot with Install watch
Launch and configure the software
Close the snapshot
Analyse the results and try to find where the configuation is stored.

When you did the original capture why didn't you just capture the configuration with it?

A bit of Googling (taking me all of two minutes) revealed these two articles :



which point to (at least some of) the settings being stored in the file csclient.ini

the previous poster is quite correct to point out that if you had launched and configured the application during the snapshot process and not after it, then you should have captured the settings in your package.
