the x64 version of sqlncli.msi installs 32-bit version, download versions of sqlncli.msci for x64

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
[1] states: "The x64 and Itanium versions of sqlncli.msi also install the 32-bit version of SQL Server Native Client. If your application targets a platform other than the one it was developed on, you can download versions of sqlncli.msi for x64, Itanium, and x86 from the Microsoft Download Center"  Can anybody translate this phrase into English-as-Foreign-Language?

why is MDAC download only for x86 but sqlncli.msi download is for both x86 and x64 Windows-es?

Download the 2008 Feature Pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2008 [1] contains download:  Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client X86 Package (sqlncli.msi) - 4549 KB X64 Package (sqlncli.msi) - 7963 KB IA64 Package (sqlncli.msi) - 11112 KB which I understood as downloads of SQL Server Native Client for both x64 (64-bit) Windows and x86 (32-bit) Windows. Why is corresponding MDAC download [2] only for x86 (32-bit) Windows (contain the prhrase "Available for x86-based computers only")? And why does not this feature pack[1], wuth separate links to stand-alone downloads,  also contain download for MDAC [2]?

Version History: Some versions being lost (saved as 0KB)


Greetings all,

We've got lots of users having lots of fun with Document Library versioning. Great stuff, right?

Well, some users are complaining that when they check in and close, their versions are being lost - entirely!  It's hard to tell what could be the cause of this, but the version history does seem to back up the fact that *something* is going on. Here's a sample: http://img545.imageshack.us/f/versionissues.jpg/ ....

Here are the facts:

* Working from inside and outside our VPN

* Working on a range of MS Word versions

* Show a history of correctly checking in and checking out documents, so I think they're competent enough to not have saved a blank file

Ideas, anyone? What could be going on here?



Installing VS 2010 Professional installs X86 version on my 64-bit system


I have a 64-bit laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate.

I tried installing VS 2010 Professional Beta 2 from the download at Microsoft, but I find that it installs this software under 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\'. Is this normal or I need to download another installer?


Word does not overwrite minor version but creates new minor version (Major and minor versions)



I'm having a problem with our production sharepoint server. When editing a Word document you can choose to 'Overwrite the current minor version', but instead a new minor version is created. When i edit version 1.1 for instance, it does not overwrite 1.1, but i get a new 1.2 minor version. On the test-server this problem does not occur. On that server version 1.1 is correctly overwritten with the edited document.

I have checked differences between the 2 servers, but all versions are the same (MOSS, Servicepacks, SQL, OS etc). I compared setttings, the installed and activated features, but nothing seems different.

Has anyone seen this problem before? If so, were you able to solve it?

Hope to hear from you.

With regards,

SQL2008 - Assembly versioning: Two versions of assembly '...'. Keep one version and drop the other



If someone has a suggestion of how to handle .NET dll assembly versions in a SQL Server 2008 database I would be very happy if you could explain how to do it.

First some background though so you'll understand the situation I'm in.

I've created a SQLCLR stored procedure in .NET with some code doning calculations in the database. Now I need to update the code according to some new business rules. Unfortunately we don't have a test environment where I can upload the code and test it until it works. Therefore I would like make the changes necessary in the code and somehow change the version number of the dll and deploy that to the database while the old dll is still used in production.

I've heard of the workaround with strong/weak assembly names but I'm wondering if there's a real versioning method around yet.

And yes I know the "easiest" way would be to create a testenvironment and ahve the normal setup with test/production servers but I still would like to know if my original idea is possible in any way.

Kind regards


ASP.NET 4.0: WebForm Routing (quick n dirty version)

One of the things we're adding in ASP.NET 4.0 is built-in support for using Routing together with WebForms. Now, I'm totally aware that this is possible to do already and that a number of people have posted ways of doing this with the Web Routing feature which shipped with ASP.NET 3.5 SP1. We're just adding some features to make it easier to do

XML in Yukon: New Version Showcases Native XML Type and Advanced Data Handling


The next version of Microsoft SQL Server, code-named "Yukon," represents quite a few steps forward in the evolution of XML integration. Yukon supports native storage of XML data using the XML data type, which makes it possible to run native queries on XML data using the emerging industry standard XQuery language. Data integrity of the XML data type can be enforced through schema validation and XML-based check constraints, and special indexes can be defined that help speed up queries. In addition, Yukon has the built-in ability to expose its data through Web services. This article discusses these and other XML features of Yukon.
