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


Cheers
Shyam

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI\DSNTest]
"Driver"="C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM\\ODBCJT32.DLL"
"DBQ"="C:\\My Documents\\test.mdb"
"Description"="Test Database for JDBC"
"DriverId"=dword:00000019
"FIL"="MS Access;"
"SafeTransactions"=dword:00000000
"UID"=""

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI\DSNTest\Engines\Jet]
"ImplicitCommitSync"=""
"MaxBufferSize"=dword:00000800
"PageTimeout"=dword:00000005
