I have read the docs. I have been searching these forums for hours. I still need help. I have installed and used the StrReplace and ReplaceInFile scripts from the Archive. I'm not a programmer by day, so bear with me, please. The closest solution to what I've found so far is HERE
Basically, I want to do two things. I'll wait before posting the second one because hopefully I can learn how to do it from the response I get to this one.
----my text file----
Wherein F: can be anything, from blank, to a longer string.
I have seen how to replace a full line, but not unless I match the string exactly. How can I flush the junk after the equals sign and keep the rest intact? I have used the ReplaceInFile !insertmacro, but that only works if my string matches exactly, and although I can "cheat" by inserting a $\r$\n, that still just moves the "junk" after the equals sign to another line I would still need to delete.
I'm not a programmer by day, please forgive my noobishness... This isn't second nature to me yet, and I'm certain a NSIS whiz could do what I want in 5 minutes, which has taken me... longer than I care to admit.
