Hi!
I have an MSI package (SAS Office Addin 1.3) that makes modifications in the following files:
--------------
c:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\CONFIG\enterprisec.config.cch
c:\windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\CONFIG\security.config.cch
c:\documents and settings\my profile\Appliaction data\Microsoft\CLR Security Config\v1.1.4322\security.config
c:\documents and settings\my profile\Appliaction data\Microsoft\CLR Security Config\v1.1.4322\security.config.cch
--------------

I guess these files are some kind of config files in XML format, but could anyone give me a good explanation about their functionality.

Just writing over the old files with new modified files doesn't seem smart, since I might lose old settings. Is the preferred way to edit the files with a .vbs script or what?

What will happen if the files are removed from the system?

Any ideas?

If you are using Wise, you can find the .NET Security configuration in the Advanced section of Installation Expert.

This allows you to import the security settings of an existing .NET app that is currently installed on the same computer. Nice.

Sure, I'm using Wise. Thank you for the information, guess I have a bit to learn :-)
The thing is that this issue was found on a validation of existing packages in production. Is this such a major issue that the package should be replaced with an updated version?

(I have very little *read no* experience of the security settings in .NET)

I guess that all depends if you need the security settings configured for that particular application...
