I have installed sql anywhere v 10 on a windows 8 machine and it will not let me create a new service. System parameters are all correct. Any thoughts?

When you say "it will not let me", what do you mean? How are you trying to create the service? What is the exact error message you are seeing?

Graeme, I am using the wizard...following all the steps and when I hit start the service, I get an error that says "The Service Could not be created". When the error pops up, and I click says "an unknown error has occured"

Did you start Sybase Central with Admin Rights?
This is unfortunately the shown error message if you don't have the required rights to create a service, but quite possibly not the only cause for it.

Yes, I believe this was the solution documented underneath the duplicate question here.

Retry and check the Windows Event (Application, Security and System log) logs for more details.

Check SQL Anywhere Supported Platforms for Windows 8 support, V10 is not mentioned and probably because of the windows service architecture changes which have been introduced in Win7 and continued in Win8. I would recommend an upgrade before you put to much effort into solving this.
