Just copy the drivers to the server and install the drivers in the remote desktop (console mode).
Be sure that the driver is signed for windows 2003 to avoid problems.

Good luck,

Be sure to use the "mstsc /console" from the start -> run menu.

In the console mode its like the real desktop.

Good luck,

thank wwwally, i have done this now, but I have a new problem..

It won't let me install the driver, it syays that a supported verion of sql server 2005 is not installed.

But I can see sqlserver 2005 on the server;-


In my "All PROGRAMS" I have;-

Microsoft SQL server 2005
     -  configuration manager
     - Sql Server management studio express.

Is there something I should be doing.

Any Ideas!!!

You only have the Express version of SQL - check with the vendor to see if you need the full version of SQL to install this.

Did you install the Feature Pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2005?
And can you connect to the sql database (SQL agent running)?

Good luck,
