    How do I install BOL 2011 without Microsoft SQL Server “Denali” (SQL 2011) is installed?

  4. Hi,
    I follow this blog for the information it provides – great work guys for keeping this blog going.

    Now about this new version of MSSQL Server, would anyone know if the DB Connection Stream Provider has changed – it was the same in MSSQL 2008 and MSSQL 2008 R2.

    Kind regards,
