Include file in project with target name different than source name

Is it possible to include a file in a basic msi project that will be included in the project with a different name that the actual source file?

I have settings.conf.default which is built by my build environment. I want to include this in my InstallShield project to install as "settings.conf" on the target machine without renaming settings.conf.default on my build machine.

Currently the only solution I can think of is a script that runs right before build that renames files appropriately, but I'm wondering if there's something I can tweak in the project.

Have you tried tweaking the ISBuildSourcePath value in the File table? You can find this in the Direct Editor.
