    Scriptlogic DA MSI Studio 3.20 & ini files in repack

    Just a small nugget of useful intel if you use or are planning on using the Desktop Authority MSI Studio (ver 3.20) and possible earlier (differently named) packages of the same name.

    For some reason when completing a repackage of a legacy application DAMSIS will really go overboard on the ini file to the extent that you should really locate the original ini file and copy the true contents before replacing the DAMSIS generated one with the true content.


    I've had all sorts of problems with this in a number of repackaging situations and the worst was one called "Spell Force" which completed fubar'd and crashed DAMSIS to the point that I cannot create a useable MSI.

    The problem has been reported but it's worth noting as it probably has some odd effects with some apps.

    Luckily this is just the MSI repackaging system.

    They just renamed it as some marketing exercise I suspect..
