Solution 1

Do you mean you are distributing a database file with your application? Then the path is relative to the application.

Solution 2

Is it a standard windows setup project?

If so you have to use one of the inbuilt variables to get your relative location or have a field that gets filled in by the user when they install. You can assign a variable/name to the field and use this variable in a custom action to modify the config file where you store your database connection string.

Google for "setup and deployment" and you'll get links like[^]

Maybe a setup and deploy tutorial like[^] might help
