RE: Sybase 6 service can't start

By 'sybase 6' are you talking about Adaptive Server Anywhere 6 (also known as SQL Anywhere)?

Sybase Central is written in Java and therefore is a piece of crap. It may not work on newer versions of Windows. I would try running it as administrator to see if that helps.

It isn't necessary to run the database as a service, it will start when the PowerBuilder IDE or the application first connects.

What version of Windows are you on? PB6 was only supported on Windows 95 & NT.

Is there a possibility of upgrading PowerBuilder and the database to current versions?
