Hello All,

I have a basic msi installer in InstallShield that currently connects to a single database and runs an script.  Now I would like to allow the user to select a second database as part of the install.  I will not be running a script on it, but I will use the string to alter a .config file.  What is the easiest way to go about this?

That looks like exactly what I need.  I apologize for posting here with such a plain answer out there, but the Acresso forums were down last night, and I needed a quick answer.

But, points are always good :).

Thanks Gary.  I really appreciate it.
