I searched the newsgroup, and found one reference (sent via private
email), and another that an example would be included in one of the
later builds, but I don't see it in my example folder (as-of the #1113
build), or mentioned in the help anywhere.

I too would like to see this.

Back in SB4 I did manage to build a complicated .dll called from the installer to
install MSDE. But it lacked a lot of features, such, as checking if MSSQL or MSDE was
already installed. Then, later I noticed that the MS license does NOT allow my
software to use the MSDE installed by someone else :-( So, the client does end up
having more than one MSDE engine installed and running...

Lately, I have managed to get VNC connections to clients requiring the MSDE install,
and doing it from remote. Works great if they allow me full access to their servers.
I have been using the product from accessremotepc.com with great sucess. Just a few
problems on Win2003 servers.
