I have been out of the Foxpro game for over 5 years. Can you tell me, please, just how in the world one does that ShellExecute call you are talking about to get the .reg entries into the system, and if I have to do it differently between "new" installs of the DSN and "update" installs, as you alluded to that DBA's might need if they move the database?

This solution sounds like EXACTLY what I need!
