Running connectivity program for Win2K SQL server.
I'm setting up Windows Vista Ultimate as a workstation at work. As such, it
must connect to our Win2K SQL server.
When I try to install the SQL Server connectivity program on the workstation
I get blocked with a prompt saying it is blocked due to compatibility
issues. I've tried running the compatibility wizard on the setup file to no
avail.

Any suggestions? It is imperative these work stations connect to the SQL
server.

Assuming you're referring to Microsoft's SQL Server, you should not need to
install anything to enable an application to connect to a database held on a
SQL Server somewhere else. You can create a connection using the data
sources(ODBC) tool in Control Panel\System and Maintenance\Administrative
Tools.
