Setup Local Database Dialog

This dialog will only be displayed if the option Display DBMS Dialog is selected in the Deployment Tool options. This dialog is only relevant when installing Applications with a windows database.

By default the Data Source Name will be set to the Application description in the appropriate language.

If the option Setup Database is not checked database additions and modifications will be bypassed by the install processing. Most installations which use a database directly would check this option. Exceptions are  instances where multiple installs access the same shared database. In such a case it is up to the installer to check this option in the install dialog for the server and leave it unchecked for the clients.

The Setup Database options will only be enabled for privileged installation when operating under UAC. This will require an Administrator to install the first instance of the Application to set up the database. Non-privileged users can then install the non-database components of the Application locally or on their own PC accessing this database.

Also note the field start file codes to the right in brackets for example, (DBII). As well as standard msiexec.exe parameters and switches such as '/i' and '/q', these code may be specified on the command-line to set the Deployment Tool application field values such as DBII='My App DSN', DBSV=SRV1\SQLEXPRESS and DBAS=ACMEDB.

  The values to the right of the input boxes are only displayed when SHOWCODES=1. They indicate the X_RUN or special values which can be used to set the corresponding parameter when executing the installation from a command line using msiexec.exe.  For example, msiexec.exe /p c:\<product>.msp DBAS=LANSADB SUDB=1

Confirm or modify any values as required then press Next to proceed through the install wizard.
