This is a basic feature in both Wise and Installshield. Check the help file for instructions, it's not difficult.

add reg keys instead of using ODBC in Wise

As long as the original installation provides a working ODBC connection you can use the ODBC tables.
Wise capture do not do a nice work when capturing ODBC entries, so by deleting any captured ODBC info and then import them back it will work just as good as adding them through registry.

Well, I'm assuming you're using Wise. But if you use Installshield, adding ODBC works very well.. even if you need to include a driver. Never had a problem.

I can't speak for Installshield but for Wise if you import existing ODBC that runs in another user context that information may just have to be added through the registry but as turbokitty stated about Installshield Wise will do a nice job too with Data Source, Driver and Translators ;)

The problem with ODBC settings is not Wise related.
As long as the ODBC settings are Microsoft compliant, nothing's wrong.
However, Oracle and others install ODBC information which is not Microsoft-like. That's why you get troubles when you try to deploy those information through the ODBC tables. Because those API calls (from the ODBC tables) lead to errors during installation.

Interesting.. I've never had that problem before. I don't doubt it's an issue, I guess I've just been lucky.
