Registry settings on installation

Caution

To improve robustness across power failures on systems using certain Intel storage drivers, specific registry entries must be set. Failure to set this parameter can result in lost data and corrupted databases in the event of a power failure. See To improve robustness on Intel storage drivers.

On Windows, the installation program makes the following settings in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Sybase registry. The following list describes some of these registry settings:

  • SQL Anywhere\12.0\Location   This entry holds the installation directory location for the SQL Anywhere software. For example:
    Location "C:\Program Files\SQL Anywhere 12"

  • SQL Anywhere\12.0\Samples Location   This entry holds the installation directory location for sample programs. For example:
    Samples Location "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\SQL Anywhere 12\Samples\"

  • SQL Anywhere\12.0\Online Resources   This entry holds the location for the Online Resources documentation. For example:
    Online Resources "C:\Program Files\SQL Anywhere 12\support\ianywhere.html"

  • SQL Anywhere\12.0\Language   This entry holds a two-letter code indicating the current language for messages and errors. For example:
    Language "EN"

    The language is set based on the language selection specified during installation. See Understanding the locale language.

  • Sybase Central\6.1.0\Language   This entry holds a two-letter code indicating the current language for messages and errors. For example:
    Language "EN"

    This entry is used by Sybase Central. The language is set based on the language selection specified during installation. See Understanding the locale language.
