hi I have 2 system DSN's in my installshield project which are authored via the registry as I have chosen not to use the ODBC tables.
they are not showing up in the ODBC data source administrator view, yet they work correctly.

Any ideas as to why they would not be appearing?

May be obvious but have you checked the User DSN tab?

Do you have an entry for your DSN under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources ?
