Would anyone have any documentation or links to discussions posted here that cover packaging SQL Server ODBC data source drivers? I have an app that requires this to be installed but I haven't been able to get the driver installed with the paclkage I'm creating using the SMS installer. It only works if the drivers are installed under the users profile. Is this possible? If so any responses are appreciated.

In first excuse to me my English who is basic...

To install drivers ODBC some they are it is necessary to inform keys HKCU and HKLM under HKxx\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI and sometimes HKxx\Software\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI.
As well as file ODBC.INI, sometimes the file ODBCINST.INI.

The "data systems" are necessary with the correct operation of sources ODBC by the user.

Do not forget to charge the differrentes hives users so that all profile them can have access to your application.
You can use InstallWatch to see which are the keys has to position and the sections of files INI.
I espere to have understood well your problem and which I could help to solve it....
Best regards.

Best way of doing ODBC installations is to create a MSI package with the ODBC settings and passwords/users needed.

Install the drivers and settings on the same machine as you are running WISE.
Create a project and just import the ODBC settings into the project (under ODBC :-)
Compile and you are ready for the next ODBC driver setting .-)
