Hi guys, I'm working on Django project and now I need to add a Legacy SQLAnywhere DataBase, my problem is as follow:

We have a SQLAnywhere Server ver. 11.0.1 and I found "sqlanydb" interface in SQL Anywhere github repo (which says it works with ASA 10 or higher) and sqlany-django wrapper (Which says it works with ASA 12 or higher)

So, I want to make some tests but the thing is with this stack (ASA 11.0.1, sqlanydb and sqlany-django) it does not work. I can reach the server and make the connection but when I try to make migrations, I got many errors.

For now is not possible upgrade to a SQL Anywhere 16 o 17 ( where it works fine, we just had some issues with AddField and DeleteModel Classes).

So, I want to know if there's a way to get SQL Anywhere 12.0.1 Developer Edition or somebody here can share me a link to download this version.

Any advice and suggestions will be greatly appreciated

AFAIK, the 12.0.1 Developer Edition is not available anymore, which seems reasonable since 12.0.1 will bei EOL'ed at the end of this year.

As you like to make use of a not already owned 12.0.1 Developer Edition, why could you not make use of a 16.0 or 17.0 Developer Edition? All these should run a v11 database without the need to upgrade/rebuild that to the database server's version...?

First, because the DB to which I try to connect is a DB of another software and I don't have control of that stack. Second, it seems that upgrade from SAS 11 to 16 or 17 it's not straightforward (They already tried) at least that's what the owners say. They say their software only works with SAS 11 and SAS 12 but the django wrapper does not work with SAS 11

I have already asked to a sales representative for the license of this version, but I'm wating for the answer.

Anyway, I would like to try the version 12.0.1, I think with the 60 days trial I can reach my goal, the rest it's not my concern, so if you can help me, it would be appreciated.
