Acceso a SQL Server 2012 desde Windows XP

Is there a compatibility problem that would prevent a program running under Windows XP from accessing a SQL Server 2012 Standard instance running on a Windows 2008 server on the same domain?

This might be a stupid question; I know that it is not possible to instalar SQL Server 2012 on XP, but I cannot think of a reason why it would not allow access by a program.

So this is merely a stab in the dark. For the moment I only wish to know whether there are any problems en principio; if there are none I will try to come up with a minimal error case for my particular setup and ask a separate question.

microsoft.com/en-us/download/detalles.aspx?id=29065 Please report back, I don't know if the 2012 will install on XP, I'm just making a suggestion. -

thanks, i will try; but I think the requirements for that exclude XP as well -

If that doesn't install, then I think 2012 has left XP in the dust.......my guess anyways. -

I can confirm that the sql server native client for 2012 will refuse to install on XP. But on the other hand, I do not think the native client had to be installed on any of the windows 7 PCs for them to be able to connect, I will have to investigate this further. -

I just confirmed that an application written in VB6 using ADO with the "Microsoft OLEDB provider for SQL Server" can connect to a SQL Server 2012 database. The connection string looks like this:

Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;
Password=PasswordHere;
Persist Security Info=False;
User ID=SomeUserName;
Initial Catalog=SomeDatabase;
Data Source=SQL2012Instance

The operating system is Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3.

The operating system hosting the SQL database is Win-7.

The database engine is Microsoft SQL Server 2012 - 11.0.2100.60 (x64)
