Hi, I just installed SQL Anywhere Web Edition 12.0.1 on Windows Server 2008 R2.

I use IIS 7.5 web server.

When I try to load a built with Delphi ISAPI dll that connects to the database through BDE, I get the following error: “This server in not licensed to support ‘ODBC’ connections” Is there any way to work around this error without changing the DLL?

Thank you

The SQL Anywhere Web Edition license does not allow you to use ODBC to connect to the database server. See this FAQ for the list of allowed APIs.

If you are simply wanting to evaluate SQL Anywhere to determine if it is suitable for your application then you could consider using a Developer Edition of SQL Anywhere. The Developer Edition does not allow you to deploy your application (you will need to purchase a license before deploying into production) but it will allow you to try out all of the available APIs (including ODBC).

I will roll back to a licensed older version of SQL Anywhere. Thank you for your help.
