ODBC - SQL NATIVE CLIENT 1.0 not listed

Im setting an application on the network. I have the server setup with the software. I connected to the ODBC using SQL NATIVE CLIENT 1.0, but on the workstations that option is not listed. All I have is SQL SERVER.

I need SQL NATIVE CLIENT 1.0 which is for sql 2008. How do I get that installed?

It is not version 1.0 but 10.0. Does you question mean you don't have it listed among ODBC Data Source drivers?

Microsoft SQL Server Native Client 10.0 is installed when you install SQL Server 2008 or the SQL Server tools. If the SQL Server 2005 version of SQL Server Native Client is also installed on the computer, SQL Server Native Client 10.0 will be installed side-by-side with the earlier version.

The SQL Server Native Client files (sqlncli10.dll, sqlnclir10.rll, and s10ch_sqlncli.chm) are installed to the following location:   %SYSTEMROOT%\system32\

Yes it is not listed among the ODBC DATA SOURCE DRIVERS.

I downloaded and installed Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack.

Still nothing. Does this mean I have to install SQL 2008 on each system. If so, then that is crap.

It is not a solution to install SQL 2008 on each system, of course. But you have to instal the Client software on each system.

The Native Client should be possible to install from sqlncli.msi which is located in the Setup folder on the SQL 2008 DVD.

Try to download and install just SQL Management Studio Express. The Native Client should be included.

I am just worrying about Feature pack. I am not sure if it contains the Native Client. You may try SQL Express Tools from http://www.microsoft.com/express/sql/download/

The sqlncli.msi is here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=228DE03F-3B5A-428A-923F-58A033D316E1&displaylang=en
