Shush, it's stealth software, let everyone find out by themselves...

It's not only stealth software, but it also uses stealth registration: I completed the registration form and waited for the promised mail, which didn't come. I tried the same thing again, with the same result (now a week ago).

To complete my frustration, I've tried to follow the recommendation and sent a mail to, with the same result. Seems like my requests where piped to /dev/null.

Hm, I have filled the registration on Wednesday (2013-03-06) and got the expected mail with a developer key within minutes, so I could immediately install the v16 dev version.

Furthermore, I got a mail notification on Thursday that the new version is available within our company's SPC account. That came as a surprise, as for previous versions, it usually took some time (and sometimes, some more mails with sales ...) until those paid versions were available.

I've tried for the third time (using IE instead of FF as the browser). This time the developer key arrived in my inbox within less than a minute.

So thanks for the feedback that encouraged me to retry the registration.

UltraLite is supported for Windows 8 store applications and Windows Phone 8 applications in v16 with build 1716 or later.

Thanks Chris. I assume that either this is a later release or that the documentation hasn't been updated yet?

(20 Mar '14, 09:00) ShaoChan

FWIW, some (but not all) enhancements added in SPs are documented in DCX here:

SQL Anywhere 16.0 Support Package enhancements .

Apparently, those introduced after build 1691 are missing here...

(20 Mar '14, 09:24) Volker Barth

You will need to update the GA release to a service pack with build 1716 or later to get this change. You will find a new directory UltraLiteWinRT which contains the binaries and a PDF containing documentation on the API.
