PostgreSQL installation and script

I created a prerequisite to call the PostgreSQL installer by command line with switches. Hopefully this works. Is there a better way to install it?

Once PostgreSQL is installed, I need to run a SQL script to create the database and tables. What is the best method for doing this since it appears InstallShield supports several SQL RDBMSs except PostgreSQL?

Re: PostgreSQL installation and script

Unfortunately, InstallShield does not currently offer the built-in support for PostgreSQL.The work order #IOC-000071843 has been filed to take into consideration for a future release. For now, you need to write your own code for establishing a connection and executing your scripts against PostgreSQL. You should be able to find helpful sample code in this community forum like this.

Hope that helps.
