Workspace Environment Management

Ini Files

Controls the creation of .ini file operations, allowing you to modify .ini files.


You can use dynamic tokens to extend Workspace Environment Management actions to make them more powerful.

Ini files operation list

A list of your existing .ini file operations. You can use Find to filter the list by name or ID against a text string.

To add an .ini file operation

  1. Use the context menu Add command.
  2. Enter details in the New Ini Files Operation dialog tab, then click OK.

Fields and controls

Name. The display name of the .ini file operation, as it appears in the Ini File Operations list.

Description. This field is only shown in the edition/creation wizard and allows you to specify additional information about the resource.

.ini File Operation State. Toggles whether the .ini file operation is enabled or disabled. When disabled, it is not processed by the agent even if assigned to a user.

Target Path. Specifies the location of the .ini file that will be modified as it resolves in the user’s environment.


While using a non-domain-joined agent, WEM might not work if the Target Path is a network share.

Target Section. Specifies which section of the .ini file this operation targets. If you specify a non-existent section, then it will be created.

Target Value Name. Specifies the name of the value that will be added.

Target Value. Specifies the value itself.

Run Once. By default, Workspace Environment Management performs an .ini file operation every time the agent refreshes. Select this checkbox to make the Workspace Environment Management perform the operation only once, rather than at every refresh. This operation speeds up the agent refresh process, especially if you have many .ini file operations assigned to your users.

Action Type. Describes what type of action this resource is.
