Approach for Sequencing: For same application with minor changes in 2 location

I have a particular scenario:

I have an application to be sequenced for 2 different locations. Depending on the location of the machine(desktop) I need to use different sets of INI files.
In case of MSI I would have used a system variable that would be different in the 2 locations and did a conditionalised installation. What will I do in case of sequencing

Any idea is welcome :)

I would put a pre-launch script in my OSD that checks the environment variable then copies the necessary ini file into the sequence before handing off to the application launch. Or you could put both sets of ini files inside the sequence but off in another area and have the appropriate ini files copied within the sequence via a script if you need something more self contained.
