SQL Server 2012 Native Client setup failed on Windows Server 2003 SP2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    My PHP script throws the following error when trying to connect from PHP to SQL Server.

    My machine is having: Windows Server 2003 SP2

    Error message:

    ===============================================================================

    This extension requires the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Native Client. Access the following URL to download the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Native Client ODBC driver for x86

    ===============================================================================

    I found the Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Native Client and downloaded it from the following location:

    File: sqlncli.msi

    Supported Operating System
    Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2012, Windows Vista Service Pack 2

     

    Issue:

    Though I see "Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2" Supporting Operating System, the installation of the sqlncli.msi fails with the error message "Installation of the product failed because it is not supported on this operating system".

     

    Can you please point me to the correct version of SQL Server Native Client for Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 2.

     

    Thanks,

    Raghava

  • I have exactly the same issue. 64 bit Windows Server R2. Same error when I attempt to install. MS, why do you always make easy things so unnecessarily difficult all the time?
