A question regarding the elevation agent.

From the SQL Anywhere 10.0.1 help:

"The following dlls require elevation when they are registered or unregistered: dbcond10.dll, dbctrs10.dll, dbodbc10.dll, dboledb10.dll, dboledba10.dll"

Does this mean i need to do something special when registering DLLs (eg. does regsvr32 dboledb10.dll suffice, or do i need to do something else)?

If you are running on Vista or Windows 7 then you will need to be running within an elevated shell (e.g. cmd) so that the shell has the proper permissions to modify the Windows registry.

There are a number of ways to get an elevated shell - here is one link that describes some of them: http://www.blogsdna.com/2168/windows-7-how-to-open-elevated-command-prompt-with-administrator-privileges.htm

Once you have an elevated shell you can register the DLLs normally using regsvr32.
