I have completed a self install of SQL server 2008 R2 using Install Shield 2010 Ver 16.  Works 100%.  Now I would like to have it restore a database whilst doing the SQL install.
I don't seem to be able to find where in IS that I can tell SQL to restore the database at the end on the install.

If I understand well, you want to automate the SQL Installation and the database restore.

I think you can use Powershell to do that; it will be the better solution.

Read this (good) article for more information : http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/110908/SQL-DB-Restore-using-PowerShell
