How to fix [DBNETLIB]ConnectionOpen (SECDoClientHandshake()) SSL Security error CODE 80004005

I have recently have this issue on SQL Server 2012 with Windows Server 2012 R2.

The error was displayed one using OLE DP Provider in the VB script connection strings.
After looking at various google post explaining this issue nothing has worked.

To confirm the server is PCI DSS compliant and TLS 1.0 < and SSL are disabled.

I have changed the connection string from

‘connstring = “Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;

to

connstring = “Provider=SQLNCLI11;

this is to use native SQL Client Drivers to connect.

This has worked and no more issues the script complained.
