Please be aware that the SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be shut down on August 29th, 2024 when all it's content will be migrated to the SAP Community.

I have a SQL Anywhere Database created with version 5. The database use a Compressed "CDB" database file and a Write ".wrt" file. The application that uses the database starts a server and loads the database. When I try with version SQL Anywhere version 9 to try and access the database I get invalid username and passwrd.

Is it possible to connect to the server service that the application loads with version 9?

Please explain exactly what you are trying to do. For example, are you trying to start a V5 write file with a V9 engine, or have you already started a V5 write file with a V5 engine and you are now trying to connect to it using [something]? If the latter, tell us wht the "something" is, because it is not a V9 engine.

FWIW the V9 engine can be used with a V5 write file, I just tested that. Please tell us what software is giving you invalid username and password. Also, that message probably means just that... you got the username and password wrong when connecting.

Just in case you are unable to connect due to missing credentials (username/password) - possibly as they are "hidden" in the application: Then this community might not be able to help that much. IMHO, that would be a reason to contact TechSupport (cf.
