I have written a small c# application that makes use of crystal report. I used the odbc connectivity for the crystal report.
The problem is that after deploying the application and want to install it on another machine i have to manually connect the database to the System DSN ODBC before the report can be generated. I would like to know how to add a mysql database programmatically to the ODBC. Its urgent please. I would be happy if anyone could be of help to me i would be very grateful. Thanks

I suggest using installation program. Start from free WIX or any other tool.

Otherwise - use reg. file to write in to the registry.
Or even from .NET - write responsible registry data.
