OK, so I'm moving a legacy ASA10 database into the cloud, but I'd like to install the server software again. However, I seem to have lost the install CDROM.

Is there anywhere I could get such a thing from?! (Or an iso)

you can copy the installed folder to the new place and it should work well. I am not sure, but hopefully you might find *.msi files somewhere in Windows folders.

If not, then follow the steps from Volker.

> copy the installed folder

FWIW that method worked well for SQL Anywhere 9 and earlier, but started to cause [ahem] problems with Version 10. If memory serves, some development environments required you to run various regsvr32 commands... plus there are a whackload of registry entries.

One approach is to go ahead, copy the folder, then (try to) run SQL Anywhere 10... the V10 Help file should provide clues to solving the error messages you might see :)

OTOH, the good news is, I have migrated several times from old to new computers by copying, not re-installing, old versions of SQL Anywhere, and the runtime engines all work... all the way back to V6. It may be the only problems reside in development environment frills, er, components, separate from the engines :)

Thanks all - I did find a tarball of the installation disk in the end. Also, I'm on Linux, so regsvr perhaps not an issue as such, but there will likely other things somewhere?

If you have a SAP support contract, you should be able to download older versions from the SAP Support Portal. Versions before v16 should be available from the archive there, both the initial releases and all EBFs. (At least that's what I have access to.)
