View Full Version : Connecting to Shared DB through ODBC

I'm developing an application that ultimately connects to shared databases through ODBC sources. The install package I've created with InstallShield X Express creates the proper ODBC sources but also includes the databases to which they are attached! This dumps an unneccessary 200 megabytes onto the client PC.

Is there a way to stop this behavior? It seems like a simple thing to do, but I can't figure out how. When the databases are deleted from the installation, the ODBC sources are deleted as well. :confused:

Thanks!
