Greetings,

My head spinneth with Smart Client. I want my application to install for
all users.

Can I do that?

Also, I have a bunch of other files that have to be installed along with
database registry items that don't seem to be covered at all by Smart
Client.

1) I need to make sure atl71.dll, msvcr71.dll and msvcp71.dll are installed.
2) I have copy down my database file.
3) I have to create the ODBC DSN for my database.

I created a deployment MSI file for SQL Anywhere 11 and created a new
package in the following folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Sybase\PowerBuilder
11.5\DotNET\pbiu\BootStrapper\Packages

So now I have the following folders:

0-FoundationFiles
1-dotnetfx
2-PBRuntime
3-SQLAnywhereRuntime

But when I start PB 11.5, I do NOT see the new prequisites. The help
documentation says:

By default, only the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 redistributable files,
which are required for all .NET Windows Forms applications, and the
PowerBuilder Runtime Files package, which includes runtime files required by
all PowerBuilder Windows Forms applications, display on this page. You can
add another item to this page by creating a subdirectory for your package in
the PowerBuilder 11.0\DotNET\pbiu\BootStrapper\Packages directory. A
configuration.xml file specifies the name of the package, where it can be
downloaded from, and other information.

I have configuration files in each of my folders, but still cannot see the
new prerequisites.

Also, I am using a trial version of InstallShield to create copy down the
database and create the ODBC DSN because I can't find a way to do in with
Smart Client. Is this the correct approach or is there a better way?

Thanks all!!

Paul
