Distrubting Database

Ara_camAra_cam Member Posts: 37
I am developing an application in VB 6 that uses MySQL as the underlying database (via ADO). I can create the db I need, etc. with no problems. How can I distribute the MySQL database and all necessary files, without the user having to manually configure or set up the database engine? Basically, I want to hide the database from the user, so they aren't even aware it is there.

    You can find the entire database in a folder called data, there should be a folder for each database (I think it is a folder, maybe it is a file for each database, wait a minute)

    [...two minutes later...]

    Yes there is a directory for each database. Copy that directory and then you need to get it in to the data directory on the computer that should run the database.
