Solution 1

there are also third party installation package managers, which allow you to do so. the one i recommend is "Install Shield", you must have seen a large verity of software, even your driver packages are made using install Shield.

if you are making a custom installation package then you have to create query file of your database eg testsql.sql,
program a .bat file with following lines

SQLCMD -S "%1" -i C:\testsql.sql

in your installation package, execute that .bat file after/before installation as you require.

but in both cases, SQL client/server must be pre-installed on system, so the catalog can be made on the running instance
