    Hi Alan,

    I'm aware that you will have this problem on Windows 2003 RTM until you apply Service Pack 1. You need 2.80.1022.3 as a minimum. We will be reviewing this requirement for the next version. In the meantime, you have two possible options:

    Install Windows 2003 SP1
    Use Regedit and change HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\DataAccess\FullInstallVer
    to 2.80.1022.3, then install SQL Bundle and change the key back to its' original value.
