InstallShield Express 2.0 has excellent support for setting up ODBC data
sources as well as installing the ODBC drivers for you. There seems to be
one shortcoming. When prompted for data sources, only the current user's
data sources are listed. Machine data sources are not displayed in the list
at all.

Does anyone know of any updates that has this support?

Thanks in advance
Ahmed

Hi Ahmed,
We are testing an update that includes the functionality to add system
(machine) data sources in addition to user data sources.
