Summary: Value attribute in IniFile element cannot be empty
I am using WiX build 3309 and am trying to add a line to
an Ini file with no value. At first I used Value="" within
the IniFile element, and I got a helpful error message
"The IniFile/@Value attribute's value cannot be an
empty string. If you want the value to be null or empty,
simply remove the entire attribute."
I then removed the Value attribute from the IniFile
element, but got a not so helpful error message saying
"fatal error LGHT0010: There was an error importing
table: IniFile with file: C:\DOCUME~1\BSIMON~1
I get the same fatal error when I tried Value=" " (a single
space). There were no errors when I tried Value="0".
