SQL Native Client 7.5.4 processor error

I am trying to install the SQL Native Client on to a co-workers machine but every time I try to run the install I get this error.

 

"This Microsoft SQL Server Native Client package is not supported on the current processor type."

 

The Machine is running on a i5-3337U CPU @ 1.80 GHz. Please help!

Nothing to do with processor type (per se). Just means you are installing the x64 package on 32bit (or vice versa). If it ends _x64 it's 64bit. No _64 means 32bit. Match the installer with the bitness.

That makes sense, all our older machines are 32-bit and our new laptops are running 64-bit systems.

 

Is there a way for me to be able to get a x64 installer?

Yes, the redist folder has it (for slx) - look for sqlncli_64 (or download from Microsoft direct, google same file name)
