Prompt for SQL connection during the installation

I have "InstallShield 2012 Spring Limited Edition for Visual Studio" and am just using it to create my Setup and Deployment project of my solution.

I want to prompt for the SQL Server and db name in the install interview. I don't need to run any SQL scripts, but their is a connection string in the main project in my solution that will be different depending on where the project is installed. Can I do this in my version of Install Shield? If so, how/where?

Unfortunately, InstallShield 2012 Spring Limited Editon does not include support for creating custom dialogs. You may want to consider upgrading to Professional or Premier edition. The higher editions also include a built-in SQL connection dialog which will be automatically included into your installation when you add a connection in the SQL Scripts view.

Hope that helps.
