How to download Sybase ASE SDK?


I am trying to install Sybase ASE ODBC driver for Windows on one of our test machine.

According to this "", ODBC driver is now a part of SDK product.

For downloading SDK from, requires a a Technical Support Contact registered with MySybase.

Can someone please guide, how we can register with Sybase for this product? Do we need to procure a license and only the will this service be available?

Thanks for your clarification and time.

    The Sybase ASE ODBC Driver comes with the Software Developers Kit (SDK).

    You can find the downloads from:

    As you mentioned you need to be a Technical Support Contact.

    Go to

    Select Login at the top right (if you do not have a login you can select "Register now!")

    Once logged in you can go to My Account, button is at the top right where the login was.

    Here you will see "Add Another Role"

    There is a check box for Technical Support Contact.

    They will ask you to validate this change through a technical Contact ID or customer number.

    If you want to go through this process with a phone call the number is:

    1 800 8SYBASE, Option 3 to speak with a Customer Server Representative.

    • Short response, I'm in tech suport and do not know specific licensing questions.

      I work more in the tech support rather than the licensing for the products themselves.

      I'm not as familar with what we allow customers to do without gathering fully paid licenses.

      To my knowledge, we do not offer any ODBC trials.

      This is because you do not need a generated license to run ODBC as you do for

      ASE (sysam licensing) and it would be impossible to monitor.

      The only trial is for ASE which is available from the above link.

      To make sure you are not doing something illegal or use a product without the specific license or agreement,

      I would talk to customer service

      or sales as they know what is allowed when using our products.

    The ODBC driver does also come with the ASE server product.

    The relevant files on Windows x64 will be in %SYBASE%\DataAccess64\ODBC.

    Metadata that needs to be installed on the target server will be in the sp folder.

    The main driver itself is called sybdrvodb64.dll in the dll folder, but it's best to copy them all, other will be needed if you intend to use certain security types etc

    Run regsvr32 sybdrvodb64.dll to register the driver with the odbc driver manager.

    If you want the latest fixes to the driver, then you do need access to the SDK. I *think* you get access to SDK if you have ASE license but best to check with the customer service team.

      Hi Ganesh,

      If you mena the PC Client installation included with the Sybase ASE software, you can select custom install for the ASE ODBC Driver. This will make sure you install all the components required to run ASE ODBC Driver.

    I work for a software company which is not a SAP partner or customer. Our customers use ASE. I want to use the ASE Data Provider to let them access their DB.

    As we're not a customer/partner how can I get hold of the SDK?

    • Hi Amal,

      There is a trial/free version of the SDK up on the site currently.

      Go here:

      There is an article titled "The SCN Download Center is Now on the SAP Store: What's New?"

      In this article there is a link to the SAP store click it

      Than do a search for "SAP SDK for Adaptive Server Enterprise"

      Click the free trial and it will ask for your information and send you an email.

      From the link you get you should see a list of the SDKs.

    I hope this comment will be useful for everyone who will be searching for odbc driver. I found new Sybase ODBC driver which is released not a while ago. It has an evaluation period during which you can test it.
