      Hello, I’m having a hard time understanding how to read an .ini file change prior to my If/ Elseif/Else.
      Previously, I read the value that changed from the Registry – no problem. (shown below)
      Now the software no longer writes the default source there. Instead the vendor decided to include it in an .ini file.
      Can someone please show me what I need to add in order to pick up the Key value?

      One of the lines in Section “Defaults” is DefaultSource32. This can only be set as one item, but there are many options. I’m only running my IF statement when this changes from Software Import to Fujitsu fi-7160 or Fujitsu fi-7260.

      .ini file
      [Defaults]
      DefaultSource32=Software Import

      Here’s my previous script.

      Thank you!

      Thanks, kvprasoon.

      I did some digging around and ultimately tested this. It works and returns exactly what I need.

      Thanks again!
