Place it in a distribution folder
You can have the setup program distribute custom files
during the installation. The defaults.ini should end up in a subfolder
PDF Writer\PDF Writer - bioPDF under the location
for common application data on the system.
This is done by creating a folder named
CommonAppData\PDF Writer\PDF Writer - bioPDF next to the
setup program. Your defaults.ini should be copied to this subfolder.
When the defaults.ini is in place you can run the setup program.
The setup program will detect the file in the
CommonAppData\PDF Writer\PDF Writer - bioPDF folder and
copy it to the correct location during the installation process.
