During the installation of Recon SQL Server 2005/Server Express 2005, the install fails with the error:
"The installer returned error code 70095."
Error code 70095 usually indicates that the system has an invalid version of MDAC installed or one of the other pre-requisites have been violated. SQL Server 2005 requires that Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 2.8 SP1 or later be installed on the system. (For a complete list software and hardware requirements for SQL Server 2005, please see the following Microsoft KB Article)
To resolve the issue, the following steps are required:
- Uninstall the SQL Native Client in Add/Remove Programs
- Install MDAC 2.8 SP1 or later
- Re-run the Recon install. SQL Server 2005 should now install without errors.
