Hey Sagar
U need to write Platform specific code.

Please write a Registry programming using java or run a C++ program to registry an entire for DSN creation.
Then u can go ahead in installing.

Do u got me.

Any way installation shield doesn't support this, but u can write a one and include this in your shield

Here are the registry settings for a sample Access database.  The DSN name is DSNTest and the database is c:\my documents\test.mdb

"DBQ"="C:\\My Documents\\test.mdb"
"Description"="Test Database for JDBC"
"FIL"="MS Access;"


"DSNTest"="Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)"
