I have downloaded the relevant program: SQLA16Developer.

My goal is to test with UltraLite using the 'CustDB' example.

What happens is that when opening the custDB executable (As indicated by the tutorial) I get the following errors and the database 'empty':

- Error during 'Startup' operation. [-954 custdb.udb]

- Database initialization faliure My operating system is 64-bit and x64 processor Any help how to proceed in this case? Attached images of errors.

Thank you in advance for your attention!

The application, as implemented, expects that the UltraLite database is in the current directory but it is not the location where you are running the executable - this pre-built exe is provided as convenience. You can copy the database from %sqlany16%\Samples\UltraLite\CustDB\custdb.udb to the same directory as the executable to start the application. Alternatively, you can build the application yourself and modify the code to explicitely provide the database location.
