Here's a few tips:

1. You can use MSI to treat the config files in the same manner in handles
windows INI files. We allow our config files to contain lines starting
with '[', which to Condor is a comment, but to MSI is the beginning of
a section in the INI file.

2. The only registry key you need to worry about is:


This string tells Condor where the main config file for that machine
is located (path and filename).

3. You'll also have to install Condor as a service, and you'll want to
make sure that it's set up to run as local system.

good luck,
