  • Hello,

    On SQL Server 2008 media, please take in consideration that the 64-bit SQL Server Native Client package is named sqlncli10_x64.msi.

    On a SQL Server 2005 media please see the following from BOL:

    “For 64-bit Windows on Windows (WOW64) installations, you must use the 64-bit SQL Native Client package, named sqlncli_x64.msi on the 32-bit installation disk and sqlncli.msi on the 64-bit installation disk.”


    Hope this helps.
