Hello Friends,

I am new to Install shield 2008. This is the first time I am using any kind of packaging software. Basically, I came from Sysadmin background, however, I didn't have any knowledge of programming.

In my current project, I have to create a setup kit, which will address the following issues:

1. While it will connect any SQL Server 2000, it should prompt for the path of the .mdf and .ldf file.

2. The database could be located in any drive as per the user's requirement, however, it should reside in a folder with the following naming convention:
drivename\product_name\database.

In this case, the user should be able to create the database in any drive present in his/her computer, and install shield should prompt the user for the same (mdf & ldf file location).

Could anyone help me towards resolving this issue?

Thanks in advance.
