This is kind of off-topic, but I am starting on a native OLEDB provider for
ADO.  This would eleminate the ODBC driver issue.  No ECD yet...

To answer your question, you can do a ::CreateProcess() and then
::WaitForSingleObject() on the HINSTANCE that comes back in
lpProcessInformation->hProcess.  The Win32 subsystem will signal the handle
when the process dies, which triggers WaitForSingleObject() to return.  If
it is an InstallShield installer, then that won't work because install
shield spawns another process and then kills itself.  Hope this helps.

I assume some people have written windows based applications for a front end
to postgresql.  I have a VB app that uses ADO to conenct to the odbc driver
of postgresql.

The question I have is, has anyone done something for the install (either
using package and deployment or windows installer) to automate the
postdrv.exe isntall along with the normal application?  I was thinking about
having the setup fire off the postdrv install, and then modify the registry
for the ODBC data source, but was hoping someone else hs already done
something along this lines.
