View Full Version : How to modify SQL Script

12-04-2012, 09:01 AM

I need to understand how modify sql script during my istallation.

My problem is the following: during the installation I must create and populate a database. I can do it by sql scripts but for the first one I need to change a variable using the network name of the computer where the installation is done. How can I do this?

Thank you in advance for your reply.

I use the Text Replacement in the SQL Script View: In the SQL Skript I have some predefined strings which are replaced with the actual values during the installation (e.G. DATABASENAME as given by the user, COMPUTERNAME, SERVERNAME and so on.)

Thank you very much for your reply.

I solved my problem using an InstallScript custom action and running the scrip by cmd.
In this way I could use .Net dll for the calculation of the parameters (eg: local network account) that I needed.
