Install SuiteCRM with SQL 2012


I have a W2K12 server running IIS 8 and PHP 5.6 with an MSSQL cluster that I want to house the database on. The problem I am running into is I keep getting the:

"Database unavailable

Database Support was not found. Please make sure you have the necessary drivers for one of the following supported Database Types: MySQL or MS SQLServer. You might need to uncomment the extension in the php.ini file, or…"

I added the MSSQL drivers and added the proper extension line to the ‘php.ini’ file (extension=php_sqlsrv_56_nts.dll), but this did not resolve the issue. I then un-remmed the MySQL drivers from the PHP.ini file and I get past this point and am able to select MySQL server instance.

Any help in getting past this so I can utilize SuiteCRM on MS SQL 2012 would be greatly appreciated.
