Here is what I get, after I provide the required info and submitt (I get to this downloads page indirectly and automatically, after being asked to provide some info):

The webpage at https://downloads.sdn.sap.com/Sybase_Trials/SA16Developer.exe might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address. Error code: ERR_CONTENT_LENGTH_MISMATCH

Any ideas what is going on?

The sap.com Survival Kit contains Patience, Perserverence and Pliancy.

Patience enough to wait for Happy Times to return.

Perserverence enough to avoid missing a window of opportunity.

Pliancy enough to try alternative search paths.

Big things are happening with Sybase-related content so you really need the survival kit.

Sorry for the inconvenience. You've somehow gotten to an old version of the download that was moved to a new location last week. If you go to this page and register, you should get a proper download link. https://global.sap.com/campaign/ne/sybase/sql_anywhere_16_download_program/index.epx?kNtBzmUK9zU

If you could post the link you started from that got you to the wrong download, post it here and I will pass it along to the marketing folks to make sure it has been updated.

I started here:

https://global.sap.com/campaign/ne/sybase/sql_anywhere_16_download_program/index.epx?kNtBzmUK9zU

Then tried to get a free trial from here and got a 404 not found:

http://www.sap.com/pc/tech/database/software/sybase-sql-anywhere/index.html

I was finally able to get it by registering a new trial account (don't remember from which page that worked and don't care anymore). I just don't get it, why is it so difficult to get to a trial download?

Although I like Breck's comments, the whole situation is less funny when doing this over the wend on a pet project that might end up requiring a real license to run SQL Anywhere, UltraLite and Mobilink.

You are right. It should not be that hard to get a trial version of the software. We are working to improve the process, and will keep working at it until we no longer see posts like yours.
