It is system related. What system do you have? SQL Server ODBC Driver 2000.86.3959.00 is available from Windows Server 2003 SP2.

MDAC 2.8 SP1 is the same as with Windows Server 2000 SP4

You can install client tools for SQL Server 2000 only, and use SQL Server native Client driver.

On your own risk you could take file sqlsrv32.dll located in %windir%\windows\system32\ from e.g. windows server 2003 sp2 and place it in your windows server 2008.
First backup your original file, next run cmd as an administrator use regsvr32 /u sqlsrv32.dll to unregister old library, copy new file and run regsrvr32 sqlsrv32.dll.
You should see new version after that.
Do not use dll file serving websites to get that file.
