MSI: INIFile table - using "[blah blah]" as value

[REM _DDE_Direct][FileOpen("??")]

When the MSI executes, it displays a NULL entry, eg, it is supposed to look like this:

DDEOPEN=[REM _DDE_Direct][FileOpen("??")]

but it comes out like this:

Add a property in property table with following value

MYVALUE=[REM _DDE_Direct][FileOpen("??")]

IniFile table use it like this

try escaping the square brackets by replacing them with [\[] and [\]] respectively

so that would become [\[]REM _DDE_Direct[\]][\[]FileOpen("??")[\]]
