Allows to remove data from .ini file entries.


IniValueRemove:<description>,<filename>,<section>,<value>,,[,advanced build parameters]



This example removes just the reference to e.g. C:\Windows\badmalware.exe from the data, keeping other load entries intact.


This command removes data from INI file content values; useful mostly in places where other data in the same value needs to be kept, thus the value cannot be removed completely.

  1. The first parameter is a standard description; either plaintext, or better a description template, since that allows localization when displaying results to the user.
  2. The second parameter describes the file; you may use path template here. PT
  3. The third parameter describes the section inside the INI file; Algo-Prefixes are allowed here. AP PT
  4. The fourth parameter describes the name of the value; Algo-Prefixes are allowed here. AP PT
  5. The fifth parameter identifies the data the value has to match. PT
  6. The sixth parameter finally defines the text that is to be removed. PT
  7. Optionally, you may use advanced build parameters in the seventh parameter.

You might want to take advantage of the Algo-Prefix <$REGMATCHn> result of previous <regexpr> checks here.
