I think the only way for Install Shield to install that support is to have it setup the BDE alias, But to do that the files that support Access files have to be in place, but thats the problem right?
It seems that there are several solutions:

1) Tell the user to install the Access support with the Access setup program, not really a cool way of doing it...

2) Let IS install the files and make the registry entries needed, this is a cool way of doing it, but you have to find out wich files and keys the Access driver needs and throw it in by hand.

Hope this helps
