What does the properties file contain?  Where does it live? What needs changing?

So you have the file and it has some properties, what do you need to change?

for example the password property
or the username property
the file contains alot of properties.

The properties file is mostly used in Java, for example jdbc.properties
you can change username, password, port# and other properties.

So this is basically an INI file then.  This page has vbscript for reading and writing INI files, would take much to modify it: http://www.robvanderwoude.com/vbstech_files_ini.php

INI files and Properties files are not the same !
Structure looks the same, but actually they are difference..
