Hello, I need to update a version 9 SQL Anywhere database to version 10+ (so I can look at it with Sybase Central included with SQL Anywhere 12 (or 16 or 17). But there is no dbunload.exe included with SQL Anywhere 12, 16, or 17. For example, in my "C:\Program Files\SQL Anywhere 16\Bin32" there dbsrv.exe but no dbunload.exe.

I do have SQL Anywhere 9 dbunload.exe, but it does not good as it does not upgrade to version 10+.

Please, where is the modern version of dbunload.exe?

Thanks, David

It should be there as well, when doing a regular install. The names and relative locations of the database utilities have not changed (except the subdirs have been renamed from win32 to bin32 or bin64, resp., but you are already aware of that...). Have you done a regular install of v12/v16/v17?

Thanks Volker, I uninstalled and re-installed version 17 and found dbunload.exe in "C:\Program Files\SQL Anywhere 17\Bin64". :-)

If you care to create an answer I will accept it.
