  • Hi,

    msi (Microsoft installer)is a windows installer file,which can be use as standalone installer..

    SQL Native client used as data provider like ODBC,OLEDB to communicate with SQL Server (It is actually combination of both).

    You are facing problem because of bad media which is having corrupted setup files.You can download it as separate download.

    Here is the link for 2005 Native Client

    If it is already installed and giving error then you have fallow different approach ,like uninstalling SQL components and re install.

  • The Sqlncli.msi installer file is installed with the SQL Server to be distributed to client computers. The file installs the SQL Server Native Client on these computers so that they can access the database on the server.
