I'm trying to install software that will work off of an ODBC. All of the databases are consistent in configuration, and are Microsoft SQL databases. However, I need to prompt the user to give the installer program the server name and database, and then the ODBC would be set up on that machine with a predetermined name. I would also like the SQL Connection to work off of the ODBC. Is there a way to do this? I see prompt screens for it on the Dialog list, but no way to access it.

Also, I'm trying to get shortcuts to work from the Program Files folder, and not the start menu. Is that possible?

Thanks,
Matt
