Knowing I'd have some free time over the next few weeks I picked up a new laptop so I could have a look at PB 12.5 beta.
Unfortunately, I did not check to see if there was a grown-up OS on the machine and had so much trouble installing the prerequisites for PB, specificallv IIS that I ended up with Server 2008 R2, which is a fine OS but not leading anyboy's laptop list.
After a lot of mucking around I have everything needed for PB12.5, with one exception.
I noted the warning about installing 32-bit ODBC drivers. Later I read about editing the registry. All of which is semi-fine (it ain't really). Whilst installing I did not get given any option about WHICH ODBC drivers to install; frankly, this is an area which should be tidied up - real soon now. I have a series of zip files - pray how do I go about identifying which internal files (compressed file names in the zip files) I need, how to rename them and how I fiddle the ODBC tool to use the two different drivers.
Sybase Central does successfully attach to the SQL Anywhere db.
Thanks, I live in (forlorn) hope and expectation
As referring to the details provided by you, you installed a 64-bit OS Right?
Sybase SQL Anywhere do support 64-bit machine and if not proper attention/selection given, it install the SQL Anywhere 64-bit drivers. I hope you selected both or 32-bit option. If not then please install the Sybase 32-bit driver.
Locations of ODBC drivers:
C:WindowsSysWOW64odbcad32.exe -> 32-bit ODBC Driver
C:Windowsodbcad32.exe -> 64-bit ODBC Driver
Just create a Shortcut at your desktop and name it different.
As PB12.5 is a 32-bit application, it needs a 32-bit ODBC driver i.e. your SysWOW64 one driver and once you create a DSN in 32-bit ODBC, PB will automatically connects with it.
I hope it will help you solve your problem..
Do let me know in case any further clarification required.
