IniRenameSection

9 posts in this topic

Can't get IniRenameSection to work.

http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/IniRenameSection.htm

My code is simply this:

IniRenameSection(@ScriptDir & "a.ini", "MySection", "MyNewSection")

file "a.ini" is in the same directory as script.

"[MySection]" is all that is inside of the INI file.

I even made a .exe and ran it as Administrator.

This is probably a simple error on my end i'm assuming.

Thx for the help

Folder macros do not include the trailing backslash

IniRenameSection(@ScriptDir & "a.ini", "MySection", "MyNewSection")

:guitar: So, we are little Genie, I copied ur code and wrote a script and an INI file, gladly, it worked. Do you mind posting your INI file? We could see the error then.... :shifty:

The report looks good, check your INI file.

The INI file will say [MyNewSection] now. This is what this function is supposed to do.

You can't rename an empty section. Add a key and value to it and you will see that it works.

This will show you but remember that nothing will happen until after you close the first notepad window

$sIni = @ScriptDir & "a.ini"
IniWrite($sIni, "MySection", "Key", "Val")
RunWait("notepad.exe " & $sIni)
Sleep(1000)
IniRenameSection($sIni, "MySection", "MyNewSection")
Run("notepad.exe " & $sIni)

But it says MySection not MyNewSection

LOL I knew it was something very simple. Thank you Geo
