    Unanswered: OLEDB, 64-bits?

    I never had much luck way back when using OLEDB to create a Linked Server to Pervasive from SQL Server, so always defaulted back to ODBC.
    Now I got a 64-bit SQL Server, and realise there is no ODBC-driver for 64-bits.

    Is there any OLEDB driver for 64-bits?
    And if there is, how do I go about making an OLEDB Linked Server work?
    Perhaps it got easier the past 5-6 years...

    (googled and browsed pervasive, all I found was kinda leaning towards the negative side)

    There is not a 64 bit OLEDB driver or ODBC driver. Pervasive is working on it but it's not out yet.

    Thanks you for the quick reply, mirtheil.

    I'll look into having a small 32 bit SQL Server installation instead, or in between.
    Has OLEDB gotten better, or should I stick with ODBC?

    Personally, I stay away from OLEDB but from what I've seen, they are about the same now. Then again, I mainly use the ADO.NET provider now and don't use ODBC or OLEDB as much.
