    I wrote a asp.net application that has msde at the
    backend. In the web.config I have a connection string
    under appsettings whose value is specific to my machine.
    When I create the window installer using vs.net, I can't
    figure out how I can prompt the user to edit the
    web.config with his/her machine specific connection
    string. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks for the
    help!

    You can use the "." character or "(local)" to refer to the local server in
    the connection string
