Instal ODBC driver automatically in vb.net deploy project


I would like to know if I can create a setup File (for my VB.net application linked to a mysql DB) that would install automatically MyODBC drivers without any intervention by the user…???

I include the MyODBC 3.51 drivers installer in my project. When a user installs the application, the VB.net installer first checks if the drivers are installed. If they are not found on the user computer, it stops the global VB.net installation and begins the MyODBC driver installation, which requires user action. I want to skip this step. I would like to execute the MyODBC drivers installation automatically without user intervention.... and after that, go on with the rest of the VB.net application installation… Is this possible ?

Also, can I run a setup file (with MyODBC drivers installer (mysql-connector-odbc-3.51.12-win32.msi)) on computers where users are not administrators?

Thanks for your help!
