Customizing the snapshot.ini File
The snapshot.ini configuration file specifies what registry keys to exclude from a ThinApp project when you capture an application.
For example, if you use Internet Explorer 7, you might need ThinApp to capture the following registry keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Hardware Profiles\0001\Software\Microsoft\windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings
If the snapshot.ini file excludes the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Connections key by default, you can remove this key from the snapshot.ini file to ensure that ThinApp captures the key in the capture process.
If you do not customize the snapshot.ini file, the snapshot process loads the file from one of these locations:
This location is the AppData directory of the user.
This is the location from which ThinApp runs the snapshot.exe utility.
