Peter - Even if you DO get to the center, do you know which one to download? Try it. Scott Hanselman. I haven't had to download Express in forever but tried to get VS Express for my year-old son the other day so he could write code for the finch robot. People new to dev and more likely to download Express won't know the difference. Perhaps links should say something like this? I've always wondered whether I'm the only person who finds this process cumbersome.
Thanks for compiling this list, I'm going to hit your fancy new URL from now on. Marius Schulz. I am so happy that chocolatey exists and seems to be getting traction.
Kurt Koller. Might worth including a link to the LocalDb-only install file as well, just today I wanted to download it and took longer than I thought it should have. Peter Szel. Benny Tordrup. I wonder why they don't use the web platform installer. It's a great tool which is made exactly for that, and it even has sql server express in it. Chose the wrong file twice before getting the right one. Had no clue which was the correct download based on the list of files on the MS site.
Just lucky, I guess it didn't take longer! Thanks Scott. James Gaisford. Scott, could you include links for editions with advanced services?SCCM SQL Server Native Client Update Warning Prerequisite - Prajwal Desai
Jim Geurts. I haven't had the pleasure of installing SQL orbut I really hope they have downnload the installation process. It is one of the worst experiences I can remember. Charlie Maggot. I've run into similar woes since having to rebuild my VM, so this is a welcome help and quick link. I went one step further and started working with BoxStarter, which allowed me to pull Visual Studio, SQL Server Express, and more into an automated script so I could antive back and install deploy.
Here's a blog post I did on setting it up. Sean Patterson. I have spent quite a few times searching for that download. Adam Stechschulte.

Natie 18, Thanks Scott, this is very useful. Now hopefully I can return to downloading it online as needed. James Makumbi. So glad Scott has put this up. On numerous occasions I've wasted an hour or two trying to figure this out. Like fujiy said, they should fix up the installer next! Kestrel Blackmore.

The driver passes SQL statements to SQL Server and returns the results of the statements to the application. The SQL Server Native Client ODBC driver complies with the Microsoft Win32 ODBC specification.
I don't understand why they are making this download so complicated Sam Beauvois. Do you also know how to get rid of these tons of SQL Server programs? I bought my computer with Win8 in September last year. I also don't care about old versions. They could be overwritten with the new version whenever any program installs the newer version. I also have 12 of those. Michael Rumpler. Normally a google with bing search itself takes me to the download center page, which has all but listed items of what you want to download, so that should be ok.
I am surprised, someone visits marketing site and hope to find a direct link to download, aren't we the techie who should know better? I took this as a challenge and my first attempt I did: - Microsoft. Alternatively I tried: - Microsoft. It was trivial and natural to do either of the above IMHO. Narive far so good. The only real thing wrong with it is that you just get the raw file names but even from that I could work it out more or less.
Don't know what the MSIs at the top were for. Looking at the downolad download page the "Details" section explains clearly what everything is. So if Downloar combined those details in an expandable section for each file and like your links Scott gave nice link text, i. Any similarity with the heavy handed way to try to force Windows 8. In the context of the equally heavy handed tentative by the various US justice department to get access to MS servers all over the world, this is becoming a reason for rejecting MS tools and products.

I think a number of MS marketing people should be sent behind the wood shed and shot at dawn. For the good of the company. As an afterthought, this situation is seriously aggravated bu the lack of a place where I can give feedback. For instance, there is no way in W8. No way, as in no way to get even a credential bit to fix things.
This is bordering on autism. Nice one Scott. I'm guessing like the majority clinet dev's I simply though "this really shouldn't be this git, should it??? I agree the Download center could definitely use a redesign. It does look a little like the download pages were designed by a team of lawyers, and is native nearly as obvious as your post. You need to first determine your current sql server native client version. Then go the MS link and use the download links to obtain the server updates that are applicable to your environment.
Thank you for your response. I was able to run the install from the downloaded content on the SCCM server and I now have the updated Client Native client and all prerequisites are good to go and ready dowhload the upgrade. Where can I download the native sql update? Check the How to know whether you need this update section and download the correct native client update.
We have currently installed and am failing pre-req check with this warning. This is the ddownload warning generated by the check. Can you help me? Then the next week my server broke. Even though the updated Native Client is included in the download, an automated upgrade is not allowed due to licensing restrictions.
What should I do? Is it safe to ignore? I have a separate DB and the warning was for download Native Client on my site server. After upgrading that and running the pre-req check again, all passed. Hello, great website, thanks. Should I stop the services or ignore? Yes i did see that in my lab setup as well. Yes, i stopped the services, installed the native client and restarted the server.
