File locations and installation settings

When you install SQL Anywhere, several directories are created.

Some of the files in these directories are essential, and others are not.

SQL Anywhere software, whether you receive it as a product or bundled as part of another product, is installed under a single installation directory. The SQLANY17 environment variable specifies the location of the installation directory.

SQL Anywhere installation directory

The SQL Anywhere installation directory itself holds several items, including the following:

  • Read Me First

    A Read Me First file holds last minute information.

There are several directories under the installation directory:

  • Executable directories

    There is a separate directory for each operating system platform, which holds configuration files and context-sensitive help files.

    On Windows, these files are installed in the bin32 or bin64 directory. If you are using Unix, they are installed in the bin32 or bin64 and lib32 or lib64 directories.

    You only have the directories required for your operating system version.

  • java directory

    JAR files are stored in this directory.

  • scripts directory

    The scripts directory contains SQL scripts that are used by the database administration utilities and as examples.

  • SDK\Include directory

    The SDK\Include directory contains header files for developing C/C++ applications for SQL Anywhere. On Unix, this directory is called include.

Unix file locations

The language resources are installed in the res directory, and the shared objects are installed in the lib32 or lib64 directory.
