Precautions when using INI operations:
Do not mix file operations and INI operations. This is not a feature of WinBatch but of Windows. When you use the iniWritePvt() to update an INI file, Windows broadcasts a message to everybody so that processes that have to read the INI file know that the file needs to be re-read.
Overwriting an INI file with File operations (like iFtpGet) doesn't result in this broadcast. As a result, nobody, including WinBatch, will know that the file is changed, and everybody, including WinBatch, will use its buffered copy to continue processing.
