I have created an SDI application with ODBC support linked to Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (MSDE 2000) Service Pack 4.
It is working perfectly on my computer.

1) I want to know how to make it a distributable application to an end-user, assuming that he is not an expert of ODBC administration Data Sources.

2) Is it possible to make the database in the same directory of the application instead of the default one which is "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\Mssql\Data" ?

3) Are log files (.ldf) neccessary for distribution ?

I am realy confused about that.

Help me please.

1. You will have to give detail ODBC settings document to end-user
2. we can make database in the same directory of the application at the time of database creation
3. yes log files are necessary.

1) Understood.
2) My database is already created, and so for the log file. They are packed to an .exe installer creaed with NSIS with the main .exe application. How to make MSDE 2000 default user DBs directory is the application directory after installation !?
3) Can you explain why log files (.ldf) are neccessary !?
