We setup one of our development machines (a Windows 7 64 bit intel PC) with SQL Anywhere 12.0.1 and upgraded to the latest patch.

Later that day we realized that we needed the 32 bit Client Drivers installed so we could have our 32 Bit powerbuilder Apps access the database on the same machine. (no 64 bit PowerBuilder still...)

I was hoping I could just startup the installation (Win 64/32) and Install the 32 bit clients that weren't initially installed.

However, the Installation fails with the message "A later version is already installed..." and won't continue. This would also be a problem if I wanted to come back and add anything else that wasn't initially installed.

How do I get around this to install the 32 bit clients? (or anything else not initialliy installed for that matter...)

You should be fine running the "Software" entry in the system's control panel and choose SQL Anywhere 12 there. Then you can use "Modify" to re-run the setup, and in the setup GUI, choose "Modify" to add (or drop) features.

(Note, I'm using a German Windows version, so the commands may be worded a bit differently...)
