    Question MSDE Install

    I've got an application that works off an SQL 7/2000 database. For our clients who do not have an sql server we want to be able to set up our database with msde. I know how to install msde but cannot find the right information on how to install our database and connect to the msde. I also need to setup the user that our application logs in under. The application looks for a filedsn that is configured with our hardcoded username and password. I know how to setup the dsn but come back to the same issue of setting up our username and password so that it is the dbowner of the database.
    I prefer to create this setup myself so that I can support any new fetures that may be required but would be willing to look at any 3rd party solution.
    Thanks for any help with this.

    If you've got SQL Server 2000, you need to dig around the docs for Transac-SQL. Otherwise I think you can get the docs for Transac-SQL on MSDN.

    Most of it can be done through system stored procedures. Some of it will require SQL-DMO, especially activating SQL Server authentication, which would use the username/password.
