Hi everybody,
I'm building a package of an application called Import Sys, this application has several .ini files but Wise (I don't know why) Isn't seeing some of them in like that (like .ini files). So I put this files like text plain files (without extension), then, on MSI Expert, I wrote a CA to change the extension. It's working, but later, when another user is logging on Windows and launching this application installed through my msi, the Shortcut is self-healing and writing the files without the extension!, so if you watch the installation folder you'll find both files (with .ini and without extension).
It's complicated to understand, let me explain:

I have on source path: C:\program files\Import Sys\sql
Through a CA I've changed sql -> sql.ini
So, after install on admin profile I have: C:\program files\Import Sys\sql.ini

Later, normal user is logged in, shortcut is self-healing and I find:
C:\program files\Import Sys\sql.ini
C:\program files\Import Sys\sql

Is there some way to this files doesn't copied again??

Because Wise is not recognizing these files like INI files, so these are not being copied during installation

The INI-files may not be proper ini-formatted so that is most likely why they are not recognized as ini-files.
Check to see if they are not added as regular files and if not then just add them as such.

There are quite a few apps which use INI files which are not in the accepted INI format so I agree, this is most likely what's going on here. After your capture, select all the INIs and click 'Include as file' or, if you want to avoid re-capturing, delete the contents of the INIfile table and simply add the INIs as regular files.
