VBScript to create a system DSN with username/password

VBScript to create a system DSN with username/password

I'm searching for a script to create a DSN on a computer to automate setting up someone's PC for MS Access. I found one here - http://cwashington.netreach.net/depo/view.asp?Index=388&;ScriptType=vbscript - but that doesn't have anything for username and password (I need SQL Server Authentication). Basically, I'm looking to do something like this -
CreateDSN.vbs <DSNName> <DataBaseName> <SQLServer> <User> <Password>
instead of this -
CreateDSN.vbs <DSNName> <DataBaseName> <SQLServer> <User>.


RE: VBScript to create a system DSN with username/password

I've solved this - I added another line to the registry: "Trusted_Connection","Yes" and added a <Domain Name>\<User Group> user to SQL Server.
