Enabling TLS 1.2 Support
When your SQL Server is configured to use TLS 1.2 for secure communication, as recommended by Microsoft, you should enable Alloy Navigator Express to use the MSOLEDBSQL driver ("Microsoft OLE DB Driver for SQL Server") to access the database.
Starting with version 8.
When the MSOLEDBSQL driver is required, this error message occurs:
To resolve this error, enable the MSOLEDBSQL driver on all computers that access the SQL Server hosting the Alloy Navigator Express database. Enabling the driver will enable TLS 1.2 support.
To enable TLS 1.2 support:
Log in to any Alloy Navigator Express desktop app installed on your computer (for example, the Desktop App or Settings) to reveal the Log in to Alloy Navigator Express window and click Manage Connections to start the Connection Manager.
Under Database Connection, select the Enable TLS 1.2 support check box.
Click Test Connection to verify the connection.
Click OK to exit the Connection Manager.
