The question is not clear. The option that needs to be changed is part of registry, then you can use %CSIDL_LOCALAPPDATA% variable as part of that. Do you know exactly where this setting reflecting.

Hi,

If you want to include %CSIDL_LOCALAPPDATA% as part of the virtuall package, you have to exlude this location in the Sequencer under Tools /Options, Exclusion Items before sequencing.

Hi

I 've had a similar request to copy .intranet and .extranet files to the users area:-
\My Documents\My Business Objects Documents\LocData

How would I go about performing this?

Don't tell me I have to resequence the app again?

Hi VirtualY,

if you want the Data outside the Virtual Enviroment (VE), copy the data with a script into the userprofile,to include the Data into the VE, exclude the path before sequencing.

The right way to do this step after sequencing is, to open the package for edit and delete the entry for %CSIDL_PERSONAL% in the exclusion list, save it again.
Open the Package for update and create the needed folders and copy the files into.

Quick and dirty:
Edit the appname.sprj file and remove the <EXCLUSION Pattern="%CSIDL_PERSONAL%" Context="VFS_EXC" Type="PSR_DataSystem"/> entry and open the package for update and copy your files into the VE.
