    yes it is possible to do, interesting installation routine. Can you please explain in detail.

    Following is a possibility:

    1. User info screen, here you can capture the user input into an variable say %myAnswer%

    2. Setup if expressiion, if %myAnswer%= true

    3. Update/write to the ini file

    4. run you exe now

    5. after your exe run you have something new in your ini file.

    6. read the ini file

    7. continue from then on.

    good luck

    i might be able to help,if u can explain it little more in detail
