The information in this article applies to:
There are some settings that can be preconfigured to aid users in installing Direct I/O or to automate the installation process.
The file setup.ini contains a number of sections for customization of
the installation process. This file is available only in the non-selfextracting
distribution of Direct I/O. How to convert
the distributed executable to the original distribution is explained in greater detail in
the article Q100002.
The entries in the section Resources must be in the form XXX or
XXX-XXX where X is a hexadecimal digit.

From your installation script set the system environment variable MY_PATH to the
path where your application resides. This way you could make the setup.ini
file independent from path changes. Of course the environment variable can be any name.
