Create a System DSN ODBC Connection to SQL Server on Windows 7 using C#

Hello Experts,

I set up a DSN connectiosn in windows (ODBC Data Source Administrator) quite often to connect to my SQL Server Databases...

I would like to do this programatically using C# on Windows 7 machines.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks!
