Installing SNAC

This section shows how easy it is to install SNAC, the key net-library for SQL Server 2008 and beyond.

As mentioned earlier, both the SQL Server 2008 Database Engine and the client tools depend on SNAC. SNAC is installed when you install the SQL Server connectivity tools, or you can simply launch it on its own from the SQL Server installation medium by running driveletter:\Servers\Setup\sqlncli.msi.

Table 10.1 describes the files that the Microsoft Installer (MSI) package installs.
