ini editing

Hello awesome peeps

in my job , we have a lebanese erp that is a bit confusing - each time a user wants to change the POS he is editing , he needs to change a word in the retail.ini file found in his windows folder
with 2 or 3 pos this is manageable , but i was thinking of creating a small script or program to help the user change this word via gui
what is your advice ? is it doable ?

Re: ini editing

hey everyone .. i still didnt find a solution for this
i want the script to be a small app ( like old windows free apps and such ) instead of a script like the below

Re: ini editing

I think a command line script would be easier.
I'm more of a Linux scripting guy.

Re: ini editing

compiled to redistributable exe python app with some library for gui should be easy enough

Re: ini editing

the users are accountants , better to keep script away from them

I should start learning python again .. i took a course last year about network automation but forgot everything

Re: ini editing

Look into using configparser in python, implement your solution as a script first, then bind the functions to tkinter buttons for UI. And when you're done you can compile the script into an exe using this tool https://pypi.org/project/auto-py-to-exe/

pm me your details (ini path, section name to change etc..)
I'm too bored, I'll code it in window form for fun.

Re: ini editing

I would imagine someone with some VB experience can put something together.

Re: ini editing

I'll take a look at writing something in Qt next Sunday if no one does it by then. I've heard of a library called iniparser. It may be worth checking out. https://github.com/ndevilla/iniparser

Re: ini editing

Scorz wrote a small ini editing exe
it worked beautifully with admin rights , need to test what permissions are needed for a domain user
