Telerik - as a long term customer across multiple companies, not just the account I am posting from currently - I have always recommended your products but around the Data Access - you have left many of us with in a very precarious situation.
I have implemented the Data Access, previously Open Access product in many legacy solutions and have implemented your patch but Microsoft continues to release updates which break the patch you published. The latest patch GDR 5203 For SQL Server 2014 (KB3194714) released on 7/17/17 breaks the database libraries once more.
If you discontinued support for it - why have you not open sourced the patch to the community? Why have you not released the entire project out on GitHub or equivalent? Telling the users they must migrate systems they have not touched in some instances 2-3 years is not a migration path. We chose you as a vendor because of your track record.
This places us in a very costly position.
