How to Download Native Client SQL Server 2019




If you are looking for a way to download native client SQL server 2019, you might be disappointed to learn that it is no longer available. Microsoft has removed the SQL Server Native Client (SNAC) from SQL Server 2022 and SQL Server Management Studio 19 (SSMS). Moreover, it does not support connection to SQL Server 2019 and above. In this article, we will explain what native client SQL server is, why it is deprecated, what are the alternatives, and how to install and use it if you still need it for some reason.

What is Native Client SQL Server?




SQL Server Native Client, also known as SNAC or SQLNCLI, is a term used to refer to the ODBC and OLE DB drivers for SQL Server. ODBC and OLE DB are APIs that allow applications to access data from various sources, such as relational databases, spreadsheets, text files, etc. SQL Server Native Client provides a way for applications to connect to SQL Server using these APIs. It also supports features specific to SQL Server, such as multiple active result sets (MARS), user-defined types (UDT), XML data type, etc.


Why is it deprecated?




Microsoft has deprecated the SQL Server Native Client (SQLNCLI or SQLNCLI11) and the legacy Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server (SQLOLEDB) for new application development. The reason is that these drivers are not updated with the most recent server features and have some limitations and issues. For example, they do not support multi-subnet failover, always encrypted, columnstore indexes, etc. They also have some security vulnerabilities and compatibility problems.


What are the alternatives?




Microsoft recommends switching to the new Microsoft OLE DB Driver for SQL Server (MSOLEDBSQL) or the latest Microsoft ODBC Driver for SQL Server going forward. These drivers are updated regularly with the latest server features and enhancements. They also support connection to Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Managed Instance, Azure Synapse Analytics, and other cloud services. You can download these drivers from the following links:

Double-click on the sqlncli.msi file to launch the installation wizard. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation. You may need to restart your computer after the installation.


Verify the installation




To verify that native client SQL server 2019 is installed correctly, you can check the following:


  • Open the Control Panel and go to Programs and Features. You should see Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Native Client in the list of installed programs.



  • Open the ODBC Data Source Administrator and go to the Drivers tab. You should see SQL Server Native Client 11.0 in the list of available drivers.



  • Open the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SQLNCLI11. You should see the registry keys and values for native client SQL server 2019.



How to use Native Client SQL Server 2019




After you install native client SQL server 2019, you can use it to connect to SQL Server using ODBC or OLE DB. Here are some examples of how to do that:


Connect to SQL Server using ODBC




To connect to SQL Server using ODBC, you need to create a data source name (DSN) that specifies the connection parameters, such as the server name, database name, authentication mode, etc. You can create a DSN using the ODBC Data Source Administrator or programmatically using the SQLConfigDataSource function. Here is an example of how to create a DSN using the ODBC Data Source Administrator:


  • Open the ODBC Data Source Administrator and go to the System DSN tab.



  • Click on Add and select SQL Server Native Client 11.0 from the list of drivers.



  • Click on Finish and enter a name and description for the DSN.



  • Click on Next and enter the server name and authentication mode for the SQL Server instance.



  • Click on Next and select the database name from the list or enter it manually.



  • Click on Next and configure any additional options as needed.



  • Click on Finish and test the connection.



Once you have created a DSN, you can use it in your application code to connect to SQL Server using ODBC. Here is an example of how to do that in C#:



using System.Data.Odbc; // Create a connection object using the DSN OdbcConnection conn = new OdbcConnection("DSN=MyDSN"); // Open the connection conn.Open(); // Create a command object using the connection OdbcCommand cmd = new OdbcCommand("SELECT * FROM Customers", conn); // Execute the command and get a data reader OdbcDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader(); // Loop through the data reader and display the results while (reader.Read()) Console.WriteLine(reader["CustomerID"] + " " + reader["CompanyName"]); // Close the data reader, command, and connection reader.Close(); cmd.Dispose(); conn.Close();


Connect to SQL Server using OLE DB




To connect to SQL Server using OLE DB, you need to create a connection string that specifies the provider name and the connection parameters, such as the server name, database name, authentication mode, etc. You can create a connection string using the Data Link Properties dialog box or programmatically using the OleDbConnectionStringBuilder class. Here is an example of how to create a connection string using the Data Link Properties dialog box:


  • Create a new text file and rename it with a .udl extension.



  • Double-click on the file and select Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server from the list of providers.



  • Click on Next and enter the server name and authentication mode for the SQL Server instance.



  • Select or enter the database name from the list or manually.



  • Click on Test Connection and verify that it succeeds.



  • Click on OK and open the file with a text editor.



  • Copy the connection string from the file.



Once you have created a connection string, you can use it in your application code to connect to SQL Server using OLE DB. Here is an example of how to do that
