Missing provider on thin client

Post by laegteskov » Mon 23 Jun 2008 00:29

Hi Devart,

I'm running an application on a thin client with the Windows Embedded version and SDAC returns a "Required provider is not installed" and I guess that it needs the OLEDB for running.

I don't have direct access to the computer so I can only suggest to the administrator what to do and I guess the solution is to run MDAC on the machine? Or is there some other light wieght solution e.g. installing only the provider?

Depending on connection settings you may need to install SQL OLE DB provider, SQL Native Client provider, or SQL Server Compact edition version 3.1 or 3.5.
Please specify the server version you are working with, class of your connection (TMSConnection/TMSCompactConnection), and values of the Provider/CompactVersion option.
