Aim :Upgrade GeoDatabase issue. Trouble to connect to sql 2005 ArcSDE geodatabase through direct connection to SqlServer DB using ArcCatlog 10.0

I need to upgrade several spatial data into ArcSDE 10 Databse,the data I took from ArcSDE 9.3.1 configured Sql Server DB as backup. I restored the same database into a different name.
I decided to upgrade these spatial data  into ArcSDE 10 configured SQL Server 2005. I am using ArcCatalog 10 for doing this. When I connected to the old Sql Server 2005 db using SpatailDataConnection utlity provided in the ArcCatalog 10, I got the error message as shown in the Attachment.

I tried to install the 9.2 Direct Connect Driver in the same machine where Arc Desktop 10 is residing. Because of ArcDesktop 10 is residing on the machine I cannot install the Direct Connect Driver.

Is there any method to resolve my problem?

thanks in advance
