ADOMD.NET Release Differences

ADOMD.NET was originally released as the ADOMD.NET 8.0 SDK.

Included with this release of Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services is a new version of ADOMD.NET—ADOMD.NET 9.0. This new version of ADOMD.NET provides communication with SQL Server Analysis Services.

It is the ability of ADOMD.NET 9.0 to communicate with SQL Server Analysis Services that is the most important difference between ADOMD.NET 9.0 and ADOMD.NET 8.0. ADOMD.NET 9.0 is able to support all of the capabilities found in SQL Server Analysis Services, while ADOMD.NET 8.0 is not able to support any of these new features.

Another important difference between the two versions is in the Microsoft .NET Framework Class Library used by each version. ADOMD.NET 9.0 requires that the .NET Framework Class Library version 2.0 be installed on the client. However, ADOMD.NET 8.0 requires that the .NET Framework Class Library version 1.0 Service Pack 2 (SP2) or later be installed.

The following table summarizes the differences between ADOMD.NET 9.0 and ADOMD.NET 8.0.
