    Hello, thank You for new version of SSMA, but I’ve now problem with linking tables from Access with all versions of SSMA. I want to migrate Access database to SQL Azure. Each time I’ve got error – “for your link tables to work with sql azure, you need to install a newer SNAC provider. For more information click” I’ve installed many verions of Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 R2 Native Client, but without success. I’ve installed now the newest packages for SQL Server 2008 R2 (2009.100.6542.0) and 2012 (2011.110.6523.0). I”ve also installed 6.01.7601.17514. Please help:)

    Why is the installer, SSMA for Access.6.0.1.exe, requiring .NET Framework v2.0 when the requirements on the download page lists “Microsoft .NET Framework version 4.0 or a later version”?

    I have .NET Framework 4.5.2 and 4.6.1 already installed.


    1. This should be resolved with SSMA 7.0

    All the download links are dead here, and the links on are dead too.

    Can you please provide updated links to SSMA for Access ?

    1. I am not sure what the issue was when you tried to follow the links. As of this morning the links appear to be working. The link for SSMA For Access is SSMA For Access 7.0.
