Name of the initialization registry subkey or the application's initialization (.INI) file.
When the Registry Base Key (-basekey) parameter is not specified at startup, the AVM searches the HKEY_CURRENT_USER key followed by the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key for the specified name. If no registry key of the specified name is found, the AVM searches for a .INI file that matches name.
You can only use this startup parameter at the command line. It is ignored when used in a .pf file.
Note: The -ininame parameter replaces the -name option for the Windows Attributes (-Wa) parameter for Version 7.3B and later.
