I agree with this when you need to clean traces of system activity, browsers or popular Windows applications.
But I use some special applications that are not supported by R-Wipe & Clean, and therefore my own sections (entries) were added to the winapp2.ini file to clean traces of these applications.

I just recently started using R-Wipe & Clean, but nevertheless I think that winapp2.ini cannot be used in R-Wipe & Clean in the same way as it is used in CCleaner and other similar cleaners, since R-Wipe & Clean has a different traces structure.
But I found that winapp2.ini can be converted to custom cleanup lists, which in R-Wipe & Clean are called the wipe list.

In your case, you can try to do the following:
  • create a separate file with the extension .ini and from the file winapp2.ini that you used in CCleaner, put only sections for your special programs in the new file
  • in R-Wipe & Clean open Tools on the toolbar and click R-Wipe & Clean Smart, this is a separate program for working with wipe lists
  • in R-Wipe & Clean Smart, open Advanced on the toolbar and click Import from .INI
Next, I think you will understand what to do.

After you do everything, all your special programs will be displayed in R-Wipe & Clean in the Wipe Lists section, this is the bottom section of the tree on the left.

Thank you very much.
Although R-Wipe & Clean doesn't have all the features available in CCleaner, R-Wipe & Clean is really a more advanced cleaner than CCleaner.

At the end of importing the current version of Winapp2.ini, a message is displayed stating that the following 9 keys were not recognized:
  • Default
  • Detect
  • DetectFile
  • DetectOS
  • LangSecRef
  • RECURSE
  • REMOVESELF
  • Section
  • Warning
As far as I know, only the Default, LangSecRef, Section, and Warning keys apply only to CCleaner.

Although R-Wipe & Clean understands .ini files, we cannot guarantee that all keys in all .ini files will be recognized.

I seem to have found a way to make Wipe & Clean recognize the following keys:
  • Detect
  • DetectFile
  • RECURSE
  • REMOVESELF
All you have to do is set INI Import Settings:

Then, among the winapp2.ini keys that are used not only by CCleaner, there will be only one key that Wipe & Clean does not recognize, it is DetectOS.
