Resolving error – SQLNCLI1.1 is not registered on the local machine

I was working on some desktop application when I got the following error at the time of providing user credentials to login i.e. when the application looks for Data Base details.
Installing the SQL native client to my system solved my problem. I followed the following steps:-
  1. Navigate to http://www.microsoft.com/en-in/download/details.aspx?id=15748 

                 

  2. Expand the Install Instructions section
  3. Search for text “sqlncli”. Following highlighted text would be displayed.Note down the file name corresponding to your operating system.
  4. Now, Click on Download link at the top of page.
  5. Select the check box for file noted above and click Next.
  6. The file would be downloaded. Run the set-up file. Microsoft Native Client Set-up would open up. Follow the instructions to install the same.

  7. Issue resolved…:)
