Q7750020: How to install the Microsoft OLE DB Driver for SQL Server (MSOLEDBSQL)?

The Microsoft OLE DB Driver for SQL Server (MSOLEDBSQL) is recommended by Microsoft, but it is NOT installed by default on most Server platforms.

For installation guidelines, please use the following URL:
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/connect/oledb/oledb-driver-for-sql-server?view=sql-server-ver16

IMPORTANT NOTE: MSOLEDBSQL requires the "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2022 14.34" or higher. On 64-bit systems, you need to install both the 64-bit and 32-bit runtime packages, because the 64-bit driver does NOT install without the 32-bit runtime! If you do NOT install both the 64-bit and 32-bit Redistributables, you'll get the error:
"This application requires Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2022 (x64/x86, version 14.34 at minimum)."
Please download the packages from here:
