    Post Error 1919 ODBC error:8

    i am very new in installsheild. I had created a software package for NT, like setup.exe. this software require Mdac2.7. so i package with this software. Everything went fine, except for when i run setup.exe on client's computer, at the end i get error message.
    "Error 1919. Error configuring ODBC data source Sql Server,
    ODBC error 8: invalid keyword-value pairs. Verify that the
    file SQL server exists and that you can access it".
    I know its not a permission issue (or may be) because I am installing as a local admin.
    I am using InstallShield Developer - AdminStudio Edition 5 version. Any help would be very very appriciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Pls make sure if you have checked the option "Map registry data to the appropriate ODBC tables" in the Repackaged IDE under Repackaged Output - Advanced settings view when building the MSI.

    Based on the error, I am assuming that one of entries in the ODBCSourceAttribute table is incorrect.

    Create a log file for the installation using the following command line to determine which ODBCSourceAttribute is incorrect:

    msiexec /i <Msi Package Name> /lv*<Log File Name>

    Then, open the MSI package in Developer IDE. Go the Director Editor and Select the ODBCSourceAttribute table. In this ODBCSourceAttribute Table remove the value, pair that is incorrect and the try installing the package again.

    This should help you narrow the problem down.
