Hi, we are using package builder to create exes and then pushing them out as swd packages. The problem is, each install creates and leaves CFG files on the client PC - "autoheal packageName.cfg" and "uninstall packageName.cfg." Is there any way to create and push out an swd package without creating these log files? Would it be detrimental to the package if I add a line to delete these files in the package builder script, i.e. what are they used for? many thanks in advance!

One PB is end of life, so I would work on something new for packaging. The cfg files are created automagically by the EXE. These cfgs are needed to heal and uninstall if the main EXE is missing. I think if you remove them then you will not be able to uninstall/heal the package. Make sure there is no UNINSTALL lines in your main cfg. Personally I would not worry about them
Hi, thanks for the response. The cfg files just clutter a user's pc, and eventually I can see just a ton of unnecessary files for old packages taking up space. I know that PB is end of life with ldms 9.0 - do you know if PB will still work with ldms 9.0, or will I have to convert to adminstudio lite?
