Hi,

I am trying to package Great Plain v8 Client, I would like to know if someone has packaged this program before and how he made it!

Because I know I will have to do some ODBC in command line and I know that I can not pass the USER/PWD in ODBC by command line.

ODBC connections can easily be made inside MSI using either an authoring tool's ODBC view or the ODBC set of tables in direct edit views.

When adding entries you will usually manually have to add in various lines in the table for things like the username, password and dbq location. These things can be copied from the ODBC registry entries that will exist once you manually create the entries on a PC.

You may find of course that snapshot finds and fills in the correct tables for you anyway.

Paul, I think it's fair to say that almost everyone avoids the use of the ODBC-adding features of both main players' tools and instead edits the Registry table directly or imports a .REG into that table.

Then you said that I can manually create a entries in the ODBC and then import the reg file and it will work fine?

VBScab,
I have never had a single problem using the ODBC view and use it every time I have to do an ODBC entry. I am sure there may be occasions to use the registry however i have yet to come across 1.

jmpouliot,
Yes you can just export the ODBC registry keys and add them to your package as stated above or use the ODBC view, whichever is easier.

Regards,
