I am repackaging an app that uses a user preference file stored in the user profile (win2k) My app is a new version of the app so users will want to keep the preference file already customised to their needs from the existing version.

Now the customer has asked if we can update one section of the file for everybody with new default template files. So the section is currently
]
defaultCategoryTemplates [
1
"architecture.vhd"
2
"entity.vhd"
3
"combined.vhd"
4
"package_header.vhd"
5
"package_body.vhd"
6
"configuration.vhd"
7
"module.v"
8
"verilog_include.v"

They would like it changed to

]
defaultCategoryTemplates [
1
"Skeleton_a.vhd"
2
"Skeleton_e.vhd"
3
"Skeleton_ea.vhd"
4
"Skeleton_pkg.vhd"
5
"Skeleton_bdy.vhd"
6
"Skeleton_c.vhd"

I know next to nothing about wscript,vbs etc - barely get by with my kix. Could a script be written that runs on user login to update this section of the file (it's called hds_user_prefs) without changing anything else?

thanks in advance for any assistance!!

Is this still a problem? Was posted some time ago.

If so, this is relatively simple to do with a bit of VBscript.
