When browsing the book Universal Command Guide: For Operating Systems by Guy Lotgering I found some interesting commands:
ACINIUPD: utility to update the INI file.
|ACINIUPD||[ /e | /k ] [ /u ] [ /v ] ini_file section key new_value|
|/e||Update the value for the key in the section specified|
|/k||Update the key name with the new key name in the section specified|
|/u||Update INI file in user's windows directory (or any other directory) instead of system directory|
ACINIUPD.EXE is located in the "%SystemRoot%\Application Compatibility Scripts" directory on Windows 2000 (Advanced) Server systems.
As Christoph Geiser found out and mailed to me (thanks):
... the command runs only on W2K Server and not on W2K Pro!
... it only works fine with admin permission. Only with the /u parameter you can use it with normal user rights.
... the syntax is something like:
ACINIUPD /e "d:\testdir\test.ini" "section1" test "5"
d:\testdir>type test.ini [section1] test=5
