How to ensure that you are running the correct version of the utilities when you have multiple versions installed

If you have multiple versions of SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere on your Windows computer, pay attention to your system path when using utilities. Since the installation adds the most recently installed version executable directory to the end of your system path, it is possible to install a new version of the software, and still inadvertently be running the previously installed version.

For example, if a version 8 executable directory is ahead of the 16 executable directory in your path and you use the dbinit command, you use the version 8 utility, and consequently create a version 8 database.

There are several ways you can ensure that you are using the version 16 utilities, including:

  • Modify your system path so that the version 16 executable directory is before any previous version executable directory.

  • Change to the version 16 executable directory before running your command.

  • Specify a fully-qualified path name to the utility name that indicates the exact location of the utility you want to run.

  • Create scripts to change your environment to use the correct version of the utilities.

  • Uninstall the old software.
