So, the user must copy/make a config secondary file manually?

The sequence i had in mind was:

Check if secondary exits
if no, create one and save to disk
Check if primary exists
if no, copy from secondary to primary

This way in first run both files will be automatically generated and if 
desired, the user can change/edit the secondary/template file.

But look that this is not the desired behavior

Inside CopySecondaryConfigFile function(lazconf.inc)
at SrcFS:=TFileStream.Create(SecondaryFilename,fmOpenRead);
