  • Hi akki_1995,

    Based on your description, you get the error “sqljdbc_4.0.2206.100_enu.exe is not a valid win32 application” when running sqljdbc_4.0.2206.100_enu.exe.

    The error could be caused by that  the sqljdbc_4.0.2206.100_enu.exe file is corrupt. Please make sure that sqljdbc_4.0.2206.100_enu.exe file is downloaded successfully, download it again from this link if needed. And extract the file with WINRAR or WINZIP.

    In addition, run a virus and malware scan on your computer to make sure there is no blocking for you running  sqljdbc_4.0.2206.100_enu.exe.
