I'm working with a software that builds database on SA V5 (sybase) It's quite active (new entry every minute), and therefore I cannot "unload" the database each time (using newer SA).
Is there a repo where I can find old versions, which will be able to read my database? Thanks a lot for your help, Best,
It would probably be best to contact the vendor/author of your application for advice. None of the versions mentioned are available today, and any verson you could purchase would require the database to be upgraded in a way that would make it incompatable with the software you are currently using.
If your V5 came as a licensed network server you could use that and the client software (you already have) to connect live to the production system. Look for a dbsrv50.exe in the SQL Anywhere directories and check to see if it supports anything more than 1 user license. There is no guarantee you have that, as you could have purchased a 'stand alone'-/'personal server'-only license originally or were shipped either that or the more limited Runtime engine.
