Please be aware that the content in SAP SQL Anywhere Forum will be migrated to the SAP Community in June and this forum will be retired.

Are there any restrictions or incompatibilities to watch for? (using on Windows 7)

The Help says "-i Displays an icon that you can double-click to display the database server messages window." but no such icon or window appears when the following service is started (otherwise, everything is OK).

  -o "C:\HADEMO\partner1\dbsvc_partner1_demo_log.txt"^
  -s Automatic^
  -sd "SQL Anywhere 16 Partner1 Demo Database Server"^
  -sn partner1_demo_service^
  -t Network^
  -w partner1_demo_service^
  -n partner1_demo^
  -o "C:\HADEMO\partner1\dbsrv16_partner1_demo_log.txt"^
  -oe "C:\HADEMO\partner1\dbsrv16_partner1_demo_startup_log.txt"^
  -su sql^
  -x tcpip(port=55501;dobroadcast=no)^
  -xp on

"%SQLANY16%\Bin64\dbsvc.exe" -u partner1_demo_service 

Update: This exhortation from Microsoft seems to say I'm doomed to failure:
Services cannot directly interact with a user as of Windows Vista. Therefore, the techniques mentioned in the section titled Using an Interactive Service should not be used in new code.

Well, as v16 still supports Windows XP, option -i should work there as expected...

V17 does not support Windows XP and Vista, and the docs tell that for option -i:

As of Windows Vista, this is no longer available.

Just saying:)
