Hi everybody. My application, made in VB Basic 2010, uses MySql as database, but not in a client-server environment. I needed something like Access (to store the data in a local file) but it doesn´t support the advanced functions I require, whereas MySql does have them.

Therefore, I need that MySql Server is installed in the computer that will use my application.

But I need it installed with certain options that the MySQl installer provides, and these ARE NOT the default options (some check boxes need to be checked).

So, how can I make a setup project, WITHOUT intervention of the user (transparently) install MySql with the options I want? I know it is possible, because many people make customized and unattended version of many programs, even Windows or Office. Obviously, it may be MySql or any other program, what I want is the general mode to do that. And after that, install my Setup Project.

Thank you in advance.
