quick question.

in your tutorial you say in step

4: Rename the ini file to match the name of you add-on, for example ENTRIES_UTORRENT.ini

now i made the switchless installer just fine but when i got to this step you lost me.

where is the .ini file coming from?

you say nothing about an .ini in any tutorail and then in step 4 out of no where im suppose to edit a file .ini from who knows where.

please elaberate

thank you

I think "Rename the" should be "Create a new" in Step 4

It depends on where the registration information is stored. Some installers allow you to supply the registration information via parameters passed to the installer. If the registration information is stored in the Registry, you could export the corresponding keys and import them during installation. Other applications store their registration information in a file. You could simply have your silent installer copy over this file to the correct folder to register the application. But which application are you on about exactly? It would be easier to be of service if you would create a new topic in which you let us know which application is the culprit. If the English language is problematic for you, you can always send me a personal message in Dutch. Hope this helps.
