Hi,

What files needed to copy and to which target and what registry settings are to do?
Or is htere really the full 25MB package needed to install?

Thanks

I don't have a problem anything works fine.
I just want to create a setup script including the ODBC drivers and like to copy/install them using inno setup, e.g. here is done for the MySQL driver:

Root: HKLM; SubKey: Software\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver; ValueType: dword; ValueName: UsageCount; ValueData: $00000001
Root: HKLM; SubKey: Software\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC Drivers; ValueType: string; ValueName: MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver; ValueData: Installed
Root: HKLM; SubKey: Software\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver; ValueType: string; ValueName: Driver; ValueData: {sys}\myodbc3.dll
Root: HKLM; SubKey: Software\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver; ValueType: string; ValueName: Setup; ValueData: {sys}\myodbc3.dll

In case of the Access ODBC driver it points to C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\MICROS~1\OFFICE12\ACEODBC.DLL.
But I think it's not only this DLL needed, is it?
