SQL 2012 ODBC drivers for Windows 2000 client


  • Our clients are running Windows 2000; we need to access SQL Server 2012 with ODBC -- we are currently accessing SQL 2008R2 but will need to upgrade.  Where can I get the drivers to do this?

    Thank you,

  • I suggest you simply continue to use the ones you have - MS has not supported Windows 2000 for 3 years and there are no official drivers for that version.  Whether that works I doubt anyone can say - that's the inherent risk of using obsolete software.
