    There was this program that I installed a few years ago that was amazing. Well, the setup was amazing. The setup had a few options. One of them was to install the database and automatically create the ODBC connection. I raise this question from time to time on this site, but nobody has a solution/answer. Just asking again.

    You're the MS guy, you tell us. :p

    On a side note, why use an AE? :confused:

    you'll have to find a tool that builds .MSI setup files. MSDE2k can be used with it and there are some samples installs that i believe come with sql server 2k. I use Installshield and it has a MSDE plug in, but i'm sure you're looking for a free solution.
