We are trying to upgrade our installation to SQL Server 2005 (64-Bit) Edition, but we cannot get past the following error reported in the Event Log: *********************************** Event Type: Error Event Source: MsiInstaller Event Category: None Event ID: 11706 Date: 17/07/2008 Time: 14:01:43 User: KELTONJames.Marley Computer: SQL-SRV-1 Description: Product: Microsoft SQL Server Native Client -- Error 1706.

Do you have any idea what might be wrong?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It would appear that there is something missing from the install folder.

When you downloaded the native client did you download the x86 installer or the x64 installer?

    Thanks for your reply. The ISO we are using was sourced from Microsoft Downloads and after downloading the Native Client separately we stiill meet the same error. We have concluded that there may be issues with the Installer itself as the required file(s) is/a are present. This sever is "live" and business data may be affected. IainB
