View Full Version : ODBC Data Soure Setup

07-28-2003, 02:47 PM
Can anyone explain to me how to install ODBC Data Sources during setup. I need to install several of these (not connecting to anything during installation). Here are some examples of what I need to get installed:

ODBC Visual FoxPro Setup
Data Source Name: TEST-Visual FoxPro

ODBC dBase Setup
Data Source Name: TEST-dBase 32 bit
Version: dBase 5.0

ODBC Excel Setup
DataSource Name: TEST-Excel 32 bit
Version: Excel 4.0

I've looked in help and haven't been able to find anything that will assist me. Help just refers to templates that are not longer included with InstallShield Professional.

DSNs are just registry entries. Take a look at registry settings (HKLM\Software\ODBC for system DSN, HKCU\Software\ODBC for user DSN) on a machine that already has mentioned DSNs created, and duplicate those registry entries on target machines.
