PuTTY: change exe name not working? (John, read this)

i'm having trouble getting PuTTYPortable to work with different settings in the ini file. all that i have changed is the PuTTYExecutable line, and i also changed the name of putty.exe to puttyTest.exe.

[PuTTYPortable]
PuTTYDirectory=App\putty
SettingsDirectory=Data\settings
PuTTYExecutable=puttyTest.exe
AdditionalParameters=
DisableSplashScreen=false

is there something else i'm doing wrong?

Installer not reading all of ini file?

John,
I decided to look through the nsi file for the installer for PuTTYPortable. Within the ReadINI section, it only reads the app directory and the settings directory. I compared this to the nsi for firefox where the ReadINI section is much longer, and has entries for each item in the ini file.
I'm going to see if i can get the compiler working....

I win.

Well, taking a cue from the firefox nsi, i added these 2 lines to the ReadINI section.

ReadINIStr $0 "$INIPATH\${NAME}.ini" "${NAME}" "${APP}Executable"
StrCpy "$PROGRAMEXECUTABLE" $0

and recompiled. Now it works.

with a little more testing, the additional parameters and disable splash screen options do work in the original. so it looks like it is just those 2 lines missing.
