I have a database file with extension .db . When I open it in a text editor ,this is what I see,..

WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994 WATCOM International Corp., Copyright (c) 1987, 1994

..in the begining and some encrypted datas.

After some research I came to know that this was made using Sybase BD.

I tried using Sybase Central to retrieve datas and it throwed me an error message stating that "Unable to start specific DataBase : This file was created by a different version of the software"

I even tried to use dbunload utility to retrieve to create a new copy of it,but no use..It throwed me an error stating that "Unable to start specific database,autostarting database failed "

So guys,please help me out to retrieve datas from this sybase database file..

Thank you.
