The "IniImport" Command

This command is used to import a standard ".ini" file. You can filter out whole sections or particular parts of the INI file and you can change the values, for example you may wish to translate "c:\fred" to "[INSTALLDIR]"...

You can also use the "INI Conversion" explorer option to convert an INI file and manually include all or parts of the generate MAKEMSI script.

This command takes these parameters:

EXAMPLE

;--- Filter INI Import ------------------------------------------------------
#DefineRexx+ 'INIIMPORT_HOOK_SECTION'
    ;--- We don't want all [sections] ---------------------------------------
    if  translate({$SectionVar}) = translate('Microsoft Paradox Driver (*.db ) (32 bit)') then
        {$WantVar} = 'N';
#DefineRexx
#DefineRexx+ 'INIIMPORT_HOOK_KEYVALUE'
    ;--- Drop all "Setup" keys ----------------------------------------------
    if  translate({$KeyVar}) = "SETUP" then
        {$WantVar} = 'N';
    else
    do
        ;--- Change value for "32Bit" to "99" -------------------------------
        if  translate({$KeyVar}) = "32BIT" then
            {$ValueVar} = '99';
    end;
#DefineRexx

;--- Do the actual Import ---------------------------------------------------
<$Component "INI" Directory_="INSTALLDIR" LM="Y">
    <$IniImport "<??*SystemRoot>\ODBCINST.INI" IniFile="NewIni.ini" IniDir="INSTALLDIR">
<$/Component>
