Okay, this is the dumb and dumbest question. I have been working hard writing code and not knowing what I am working with and I just came to a hard stop. Error -98. I can not create a user, add a table, etc... I downloaded the developer version of Sqlanywhere 10. That is the version that is existing on the DB I am using select to get data. I created a second db to write the data. I can read all day long, I can not write or add a user via sybase central sqlanywhere. I am trying to understand the "Authentication", I am not understanding it. Is it a purchased copy or is it a keyset I have to make between the db and the application?
This tells you I am really new to sybase. I don't know what it means. Please advise if I need to buy something or if it is a connection string.
Thanks, a direction is appreciated, really appreciated.
The -98 error is only reported on an Authenticated Edition engine. Many commercial applications use the Authenticated Edition. Their applications get full access to the database engine and external connections get limited (generally read-only) access. What I suspect, given that you have installed the developer's edition, is that there is a third party application using the authenticated edition and that software is being run instead.

What is the initial version you used ?
Basically there exists two versions:
Is your login to the existing db perhaps restricted to readonly access ?
