Windows 7: Modifying .ini files

Modifying .ini files

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone could help me?

I have a program which comes on two DVD's (app on first - documentation for help system on second)

I'd like to install the program with a USB key, and I have copied all the contents of both discs onto a suitable 8gb key. However -

after the app finished installing, it asks for DVD 2 rather than installing the dvd from the usb key.

Is there any way I can get it to see the second dvd's files on the USB key? I have been told that it is to do with the way the .ini files are configured.

So I'd like to ask, how do I modify the said file in order to allow me to install from a usb or custom iso from the original DVD media?

many thanks in advance.:)

If it like some programs
you have to make a folder with name of 1st DVD.
then make a folder with name of 2nd DVD.
then copy all the files from both DVDs to the USB. NOT IN THE FOLDERS.
sample; USB
folder= dvd#1
folder= dvd#2
files from ea dvd here.

Snuffy, mny thanks to you, so let me get this straight, just copy all of the contents of each dvd onto the usb key, and just label a folder on the key with the name of the dvd as it mounts in windows explorer - but just leave them empty?

aem - I'll get a snapshot of the .ini file and post asap.
