Looking for the SQL Express 2012 driver and a connection problem

[This topic is migrated from our old forums. The original author name has been removed]

Hi. I've just installed MS SQL Express 2012 on my machine (for some development I've to do), and then activate its server. When I try to create a new database connection in my registered DbVis 9.0, I face two problems: 1) I cannot find the .jar/.zip driver file when I choose "SQL Server 2008 (Micorsoft JDBC driver" option. Do you know where I could get them? 2) If I use the standard "SQL Server JTDS" drive, I'm able to create the database conenction (I could even ping the server), but when I try to open the connection I get this message: "I/O Error: SSO Failed: Native SSPI library not loaded. Check the java.library.path system property."... Other lof info are: "Type: java.sql.SQLException - SQL State: 08S01" ... What can I do? Just for information: the native SQL Server Management Studio works fine (but I'd like to use my beloved DbVisualizer!) Thanks in advance Sergio +Italy+

Sergio, The ntlmauth.dll is now automatically setup in the just just released 9.0.6 version. http://www.dbvis.com/download/ Regards Roger

OK. Thanks for the info. Hoping in next future versions.... Anyway I keep using DbVis when possible: it's really a great product!

Sergio, The jTDS 1.3 version is built for Java 7 and will not work with DbVisualizer which is built for Java 6. In the next feature version for DbVisualizer will ntlmauth.dll automatically be loaded with no manual setup required. Regards Roger

Now I'm able to connect the database :-) The other issues are still open, but I stop working on them for a -long- while

Still problems: 1) Using Microsoft Driver I cannot force anymore "Authenticatoin method: Windows", since the field disappears, and I keep getting errors on authentication: Long Message: Login failed for user ''.
