After working with sybase anywhere with Powerbuilder for 20 years, I am for the first time doing an actual deployment and running into many issues. Here is the latest. After following all the instructions on files to deploy, when I create an ODBC profile on the deployment machine and close with automatic start I get the message:
"Unable to start database server: license file missing."
Although it was not mentioned in the documentation, I found under SQL ANywhere 11, in my development machine, "license.txt" . I placed it in my runtime directory on the deployment machine, but still get the same message.
I am using SQL Anywhere 11 that came bundled with Powerbuilder 11.5 desktop. I was assure on purchase that I could distribute runtimes as long as I did not use stored procedures or triggers. "license.txt" says much the same thing.
What could I be missing?
Deployment is on XP pro, svc pack 3
It's not the "license.txt" file that is missing but the according .lic file for the database engine, i.e. dbeng11.lic or dbsrv11.lic files - cf. the docs.
In case you are using the runtime edition, I guess there ought to be an according rteng11.lic file.
Note that this is just a technical explanation, I can't tell anything whether the license is appropriate or not...
