Help with SQL Server Connection between 10.2 and 10.3?

Good afternoon, all.


We're building an application for a client, and the MXD for the GIS portion includes live connections to a database using SQL Server 2008. The connection works for computers loaded with versions 10.1 and 10.2, but the person reviewing the MXD can't see the connected data in hi copy of 10.3. For instance, a set of sampling locations appears as it should in 10.1 and 10.2, but when opened in 10.3, the database layer appears in the Table of Contents, but no points appear on the map. There's no error message when the MXD loads, the points just don't show up.


I don't think his copy of 10.3 understands the database connection. I've seen references to running the SQL Server Native client, but I don't think he's run that yet on his machine (it is a new laptop). Would that be the best place to start?
