View Full Version : Missing ODBC Files in Distribution

I am creating a distribution for a VB 4.0a professional application which
utilizes ODBC. The application itself works as planned (which makes me
think I have all of the various ODBC files that I need on my system), but I
am having trouble building a distribution with Installshield Express Pro
(Eval version 1.1).

When I go through the various dialogs to setup ODBC under the InstallShield
Objects for Visual Basic, everything appears to be fine... but upon
finishing the checklist and running the DiskBuilder I run into a file not
found error. With a little bit of investigation, by comparing the files
that InstallShield plans to include in the distribution vs. what I have on
my system, I find that I am short these files:

C:\WIN95\SYSTEM\README25.TXT
C:\WIN95\SYSTEM\ODBCINST.CNT
C:\WIN95\SYSTEM\ODBCJTNW.CNT
C:\WIN95\SYSTEM\ODBCJET.CNT

The question is... what do they do? where do I find them?, and why am I
missing them in the first place?


Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Mike
