I have a .Net application running on Windows Mobile 6.5 It starts with an empty database (SQL Anywhere After performing a full sync the database on the mobile device is filled and the application works. But when I perform a second full sync, close the app and restart it, I get following error when the app want's to connect with the database.

Jdn assembly is the application.

The connectionstring is "DBF=Storage CardDatabaseamosmobile.db;UID=dba;PWD=sql"

Filesize of DB and Log-file are about 30-40M

If I copy database from mobile device to a pc, I can open it with sybase central.

.NET can debug C# applications, even on a device. If you launch the project in Debug mode on the device, can you see the stack trace? If so, what is the ".Message" value inside the SAException object?

Can you add a "LOG=logfile.txt" to your connection string and check the outfile for connection / database server start up issues?

If you add a "START=\Program Files\SQLANY11\dbsrv11.exe -z -o \dbsrv11.txt" parameter to your connection string, what messages appear in the server console log when you try to connect from your application?

The log-file contains this:

dbsrv11.txt contains following:

So a memory problem occurs...

I used parameter START=Program FilesSQLANY11dbsrv11.exe -c 40p -ca 0 -z -o dbsrv11.txt and now the application starts again.
