64bit (x64 and Itanium) OLEDB provider for ODBC (MSDASQL) Download!

If you've ever tried to link a 64bit SQL 2005 server to something like Excel or MySQL you know that it just isn't going to happen without MSDASQL .

Well, it's finally out! Get it right from MS here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=000364db-5e8b-44a8-b9be-ca44d18b059b&displaylang=en

Here's the description from the MS download:
The Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC (MSDASQL) is a technology that allows applications that are built on OLEDB and ADO (which uses OLEDB internally) to access data sources through an ODBC driver. MSDASQL is an OLEDB provider that connects to ODBC, instead of a database. MSDASQL ships with the Windows operating system, and Windows Server 2008 & Windows Vista SP1 are the first Windows releases to include a 64-bit version of the technology.


Enjoy!!
