I have a program we use at the company which connects to the server via SQL and on my previous computer there were no issues and it worked perfectly fine however I have purchased a new DELL computer and the software does not seem to be able to connect to the server via SQL in the application. The company who writes the software are also unable to get it to work and are blaming the computer but I cannot see why the computer would be causing a problem.
We have other 64-bit non-dell computers which work fine so I don't feel it is the fact that its a 64-bit computer. I have also wiped and rebuilt the computer with no resolution and there has been no firewalls or antivirus etc installed its a basic build of Windows 7 Professional connected to an SBS 2011 server. Everything else works fine even all the applications etc, just this one application fails.
The error I receive when loading the program is:
'Error starting connection: Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed.'
Does anyone have any ideas that may help to resolve this?
