Installation considerations: Limitations on Windows Mobile 5 and 6 for smartphone

All SQL Anywhere Server Windows Mobile functionality is supported on the smartphone, with the following limitations for Windows Mobile 5 and Windows Mobile 6:

  • The shared memory protocol is not supported   TCP/IP is used, even if you do not specify a communication protocol. You must always specify a database server name when making a connection; if you do not, the connection fails.

  • The Server Startup Options window is not supported   The Server Startup Options window appears when you start the database server and do not specify any options. If you provide an incomplete or incorrect command when trying start the database server, an error appears and the database server does not start.

  • ODBC connections may not prompt for connection information   When you use the ODBC DriverCompletion parameter to SQLDriverConnect, you may be prompted for additional connection information. This prompt does not appear. If SQLDriverConnect fails, it does not prompt, and it returns an error.

  • Unload/reload is not supported   You must rebuild the Windows Mobile database on another platform and then copy the database to the Windows Mobile device. This is the recommended method for rebuilding a Windows Mobile database.
