Hi everyone,

I hope you are doing well and reading this. I urgently need the SQL Anywhere 16 Developer Edition, which contains both the server and client editions, as I'm presently working on a very important project. For the aim of testing a crucial product, this program is vitally necessary.

Please help me find a trustworthy website where I can obtain the entire SQL Anywhere 16 Developer Edition bundle. It would be awesome and much appreciated if you or someone you know could offer a direct link or a downloaded file!

Since time is of the essence, having this program at my disposal will greatly aid in the product's testing and development. Your help in this situation would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your prompt attention and understanding of the importance of fulfilling this urgent need.

As SQL Anywhere v16 has now been end of lifed since the end of 2018, SAP no longer provides a SQL Anywhere 16 Developer Edition bundle.

Registering at will get you access to the SQL Anywhere v17 Developer Edition.

I would be very surprised if you would be able to find a version of v16 anywhere since it is such an old old version (and I suspect legally anyone other than SAP would not be able to provide it?).

Is there a reason that it must be v16. If you are doing this project for a client then you could just use their software (but the client should really consider upgrading since v16 is really really out of date!) If this is a new project then you should likely use the latest v17 software.

Just to add: SQL Anywhere 16 is EOLed since end of 2018.

Hi Mark thank you for your answer. The reason behind it is that the client is using SQL Anywhere 16 and I need to assist him with an issue. But I want to install SQL Anywhere 16 as well. I managed to get the client edition but it won't let me create any database. And I can't ask the client to send me any credentials.
