I would like to make a DSN part of the setup program using the package and deployment wizard in VB 6.0.  If this can't be done is there another way to deploy this DSN?

(I cannot use a DSN-less connection in the app itself)

Thanks!

Look at the RegisterDatabase method of the DBEngine object. It creates DSN on the fly.

Before using ADO (DSN less), I used to recreate my DSN at each time I started the application. I was giving parameters in an INI file and recreate it.

This code will check for an existing DSN connection, and if it's not there, it will create it according to your specifications :
