    Installing Oracle73 ODBC Data Sources



    Hello,

    I have just had my 1st attempt at using InstallShield to distribute an
    application that uses Oracle73 ODBC drivers. I am sure I have given
    Installshield all the relevant information for the installation routine.
    After I install it on a clean PC i am unable to configure the data source
    thru the Control Panel/32ODBC, it comes back with a message saying that it
    was unable to load the setup routines, possibly due to a lack of memory.

    Has anyone seen this problem before ?

    any help would be appreciated.

    This problem is typically caused when you fail to include all the
    components and
    the dependencies for a particular ODBC driver. Most ODBC drivers have a
    separate
    DLL for setup which is used when you try to add a data source from the
    control
    panel. A good way to find all files associated with a driver would be look
    under
    the following key in the registry if it exists:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\<DriverName>\FileList
