Microsoft ODBC driver for SQL Server on Windows Server 2019? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to install the Microsoft ODBC driver for SQL Server on a Windows Server 2019 machine (to connect to an Azure SQL database), but the installer for 17 (17.3.1.1) won't let me (says its not a supported OS).  Is there any way to get the updated Microsoft ODBC driver for SQL Server installed in this operating system?

  • I appreciate the help, but maybe I wasn't clear on my question.  I have already downloaded the Microsoft ODBC driver 17.3 as you linked, but this driver will not install on Windows Server 2019.  Has anyone else encountered this issue and found a way to get this installed on Windows Server 2019?

    That was it.  I needed the 32-bit driver, so I had downloaded the x86 installer, not realizing the x64 installer installs both the 32-bit and 64-bit drivers.
