Microsoft OLE DB Driver 18.2.2 for SQL Server was released this week to fix an issue related to Azure Active Directory authentication.



  • The OLE DB Driver 18.2.1 incorrectly tries to change the COM concurrency model on an apartment that was previously initialized as multi-threaded (MTA). As a result, in an application that makes more than one subsequent call to CoInitialize or CoInitializeEx prior to calling the IDBInitialize::Initialize interface, the driver fails to connect when using any of the Azure Active Directory authentication modes.
The updated driver can be downloaded directly from Microsoft.
