Hi,

I have one question:

Is the ADO.NET provider of sqlAnywhere 16 downwards compatible ? Is it capable to connect to a version 11 or even 9 of a sqlaynwhere database ?

I can't tell for ADO.Net and v9, however, the general client compatibility rule (at least for v12) is as such:

Compatibility with existing software

SQL Anywhere 12 database servers support connections from client applications using software from version 6.0.0 or later. Version 5 and earlier clients cannot connect to a version 12 database server.

(Sidenote: The V16 docs seem to miss such a statement...)

However, IIRC, ADO.Net support was introduced in v9, and ADO.Net 2.0 support was introduced with v10.0.0, so the cited rule may not be valid here...
