Symptom

After installing the latest Microsoft OLE DB Driver 19.0.0 for SQL Server to the client, PowerBuilder fails to connect to the database with MSOLEDBSQL and gives the following error:

Microsoft OLE DB Driver for SQL Server (MSOLEDBSQL) is not installed.


Environment

PowerBuilder 2019 R3

PowerBuilder 2021 


Cause

The changes in the Microsoft OLE DB Driver 19.0.0 for SQL Server released in February 16, 2022, compared to the previous 18.* versions, are not yet compatible with the currently available PowerBuilder versions.


Resolution

Microsoft OLE DB Driver 19.0.0 will be supported in PowerBuilder 2022. Before it's released, please use the following workaround:

Install a previous version of Microsoft OLE DB Driver for SQL Server to the client, such as version 18.6.3.
