Is microsoft going to provide 64 bit version of MSDASQL ( OLEDB Wraper for ODBC) in future This was working great while accessing Data from IBM AS/400 on Iseries from 32 bit sql 2000. Now, it's all screwed up with rediculously slow OLEDB both from MS and IBM. I wonder if any of these guys really care!

Yes, the 64-bit version (both x64 and ia64) of msdasql.dll will be released very soon.

Ming,

We are in great need of a verion of msdasql.dll for x64 as well. Our current code is dependent on it while at the same time we are in the midst of a large SQL 2005 x64 rollout and have been tripped up by the lack of msdasql.dll support in 64 bit. Do you have any idea how soon it will be out or if there are ways to get it sooner rather than later

Thank you in advance,

Mark

In case anyone cares. We are also in great need of this release. In our investigation of this issue, I received the following answer through another resouce. The MDAC team might want to confirm:

The MDAC team is going to release 64 MSDASQL..."when Longhorn is released, which is the new version of Windows. I've read that Longhorn won't be out until 3rd or 4th quarter, so we'll have to investigate other avenues."

64-bit MSDASQL (both AMD64 and IA64) will be released in Windows Longhorn Server Beta 3 and Windows Vista SP1.

Is there any way we can get a copy of X64 MSDASQL.DLL now

...I am needing this as well. Any possibility to get the x64 msdasql.dll earlier than with vista sp 1 would be very much appreciated!

Interesting. It was my understanding that this technology had been deprecated.

Well, Longhorn Beta 3 is out, but I don't see an updated MSDQSQL.dll download. Will the 64-bit MSDASQL.dll be available as a separate download I don't want to have to download the immense Longhorn and take up a test server trying to extract the single DLL.

This lack of 64-bit compatibility is delaying a production implementation for us.

Thanks!

P.S. I've tried posting this 4 times and MSDN keeps giving me errors. Hope this posts.

Is there any update since April I can not connect 64-bit SQL Server 2005 to SQL Server 6.5. As far as 6.5 is not supported by native SQL client, ODBC is the only way to make a direct connection.
