      Description

      It is unexpected that the operation "Settings" works different than other well documented operations like "Copy".

      Example for "Copy" is:

      component.addOperation("Copy", "/from/path", "/to/path");

      Example for "Settings" is:

      component.addOperation("Settings", "path=@HomeDir@/AppData/Roaming/MyAppName/myAppSettings.ini", "method=set", "key=License", "value=123456789");

      It doesn't work without "path=" in front of the path. It took me a while to find out, because there are no examples in the documentary. Even better than updating the docu would be to update the syntax for this operation in a way that it works like "Copy".
