I’m finishing a minor redesign of our systems and need to reinstall spark (new OS, no previous settings of spark)
To be able to install with the least possible interaction, I will create a msi package. (we have no AD so cannot use GPO)
The added advantage is to be able to preconfigure the client as much as possible.
I have found this guide http://itvomit.com/2011/12/31/customizing-the-spark-chat-client-using-appdeploy/ and the documentation regarding default.properties http://community.igniterealtime.org/docs/DOC-2163
I tested this and come close to what I would like to achieve for now but I have a question which explains itself in title of this posting:
can I add settings to the default properties file which are not documented but added later on when starting the client?
What I tried so far is to create a general default.properties file that I copy after running the setup to the %appdata%\spark folder and before starting the client for the first time.
This works well but I wonder if it’s possible go a step further by adding these settings to the packaged version of that file?
These are the settings that I’m adding/changing:
Is it also possible to modify the other relevant files in the resource folder in a similar fashion?
