When does the INI file changes trigger?What is the sequence?

Hello friends,
In my installer, i am creating a Web url shortcut using the INI file changes technique. https://localhost

This shows that the URL shortcut creation via INI file changes takes place before the [IISHOSTNAME] property gets updated to "WIN161"

So i want to know, is there any way i can create the url shortcut with the updated value of [IISHOSTNAME]? Can i sequence the INI file changes to the end of the installation so that the shortcut creation takes place in the end with the updated value.

Please suggest.
Thanks

SOLUTION:
The INI file change sequence is when WriteIniFile custom action gets executed. You can find it in execute sequence . Dont change the sequence of default events as it will break somewhere else then.
Instead, try to move your own custom action according to the sequence. I moved mine to after InstallWelcome sequence and achieved my requirement.
