Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Policies

What is Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Policies?

ADO applications can use the SQLOLEDB OLE DB provider that is included with Windows if they do not require any of the features of SQL Server 2005 or later. ADO applications can use the version of SQL Server Native Client included in SQL Server 2005. ADO applications can also use SQL Server Native Client 11.0 (included in SQL Server 2012), but if they do so they must specify DataTypeCompatibility=80 in the connection strings. Only features from SQL Server 2005 are available when DataTypeCompatibility=80 is present in the connection strings.


The most used version is 11.0.2100.60, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. The software installer includes 1 files and is usually about 1.44 MB (1,511,424 bytes).
