The reseller for the ERP application we use seems ot think that SQL Anywhere 16 does not ship with 32-bit ODBC client drivers. This seems a bit far-fetched to me. Can someone please confirm?

SQL Anywhere 16 installs the 32-bit client (including ODBC) by default. The 32-bit server is an optional install. You'll have to use the 32-bit ODBC Administrator to create data sources (C:\Windows\Syswow64\odbcad32.exe).

That's pretty much what I figured. Thanks

Just to add: Mikel's answer is dedicated to 64-bit Windows. For 32-bit Windows, the 32-bit server and client components will be installed by default, as in previous versions. (That may be absolutely obvious for most folks but who knows...)

Start ODBC Data Source Adminsitrator from Start | Search by typing in ODBC 32 You will find the SQL Anywhere 16 driver

There is the 'demo' System DSN

Start ODBC Source Administrator 64 from Start | Search by typing in ODBC 64 You will find the SQL Anywhere 16 driver

There is a System DSN SQL Anywhere 16 Demo

What I wonder is that the driver has the same name and version.

Just to understand: Do you wonder why the 32-bit and the 64-bit ODBC driver for SQL Anywhere 16 have the same name and version? Or what exactly does irritate you?

BTW: is an old v16 build version - I would generally recommend to use a current EBF like

Plain curiosity

Sorry, I still do not understand what it is that makes you wonder.
