I am wondering in there is already some Information out about SQL Anywhere supported on Apple Silicon? And, if someone tested, does it run as Intel app on a Mac mini M1 for example?

It can run with Rosetta on M1 but there is an issue with the installer. If you have support, you can open a support case for information on how to workaround the install issue. Support as a native M1 is not currently in place but is being evaluated.

I have confirmed that I can share this. The workaround is to run the command line (non-gui) installer -- please refer to the readme notes for the location of the command line based installer -- with the following environment set:

Ah, non-gui installer runs on my macs too. Anyway - a version for Mac M1 would be great!

To whom it may be interesting.

Installing SQL Anywhere 17 on a new ARM based MacBook Pro (MacBook Pro 14-inch, 2021) went without a problem (using the SQLANYW170001P_2-71001547.TGZ installer). I can startup all of my existing databases, and automatic startup the database server with LaunchDaemon works as well. Very nice :-) Thanks to the SQL Anywhere crew. Now I am looking forward to an ARM based database version for macOS.
