Hi,

I hope I've posted this in the right place, please just tell me if not.

I've been having an issue with connecting to a database from a website and have recieved this as an error message:

*Array ( [0] => Array ( [0] => IMSSP [SQLSTATE] => IMSSP [1] => -49 [code] => -49 [2] => 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: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=163712 [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: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=163712 ) [1] => Array ( [0] => IM002 [SQLSTATE] => IM002 [1] => 0 [code] => 0 [2] => [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified [message] => [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified ) ) **

I then followed what it said and tried to download the Native Client ODBC driver for x86. This is where the main problem is, when I've tried to do this it tells me what it is not supported. So then I try the x64 native client and it loads but doesnt fix the first issue.

I'm not really sure what to do, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Oh and I'm currently running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (64-bit OS)

If you are running SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server 2008, there is a patch you need to install. Don't remember what it is, but you should be able to find it on the MS web site.
