Mismatched SQL Server Driver Warning
If the installed SQL Server drivers on a machine are not the preferred drivers for the SQL Server version specified in a connection string, Alpha Anywhere will issue a warning.
If the wrong ODBC drivers are used to connect to a database, it can cause unexpected errors when querying the database. Alpha Anywhere will issue a warning when it detects that the drivers installed are not the preferred drivers for the SQL Server version specified in a connection string. For example:
Warning: You have a connection string for SQL Server for which the version of the SQL Server client driver installed on this computer running Alpha Anywhere Application Server does not match! You requested SQL Server version: 2017 The preferred driver is : ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server The selected driver is: SQL Server Native Client 11.0 Note: To avoid unexpected issues, make sure you install the preferred client driver on any server you deploy to.

- SQL Server Version
