Description

When oledb32.dll is for some reason unregistered SQL Server is missing providers after installation.
During installation of SQL server there is no message in the user interface or in the installation log that dll is not registered
When the oledb32.dll provider is not registered it's not possible to connect to SQL Server with eg. visual studio, excel etc.
It's also not possible to make a linked server connection via server objects
