I have an application that creates a local sqlanywhere-database via process.start (dbinit) /dbstop ...
I installed mysql a few days ago and today I couldn't perform dbstop/dbinit from my code for some reason.
I uninstalled mysql, restarted, tried again, reinstalled sql anywhere, tried again, restarted and tried again... still no luck...
only after connecting to the local database with sybase central things worked again.
Very strange... wanted to hear if someone has ever seen this behaviour before?

What exact error message do you get?
Do you run the DBINIT utilty with specifying a path?
If not, may it be the install/uninstall has removed the SQL Anywhere binaries from the PATH environment variable?
