Need to connect to Sybase SQL Anywhere database 5.0 through


I am trying to connect to SQL anywhere 5.0 using below connection string

sConnString =

" Driver=Sybase SQL Anywhere 5.0;Uid=dba;Pwd=sql;EngineName=Tenmax;DatabaseName=Tenmax;Start=c:\sqlany50\win32\dbclient.exe;DatabaseSwitches=-commandSwitch1 -commandSwitch2;DatabaseFile=E:\Applications\VinayNandaLIL\Tenmax.db;AutoStop=NO;"

It is giving below error

ERROR [08001] [Sybase][ODBC Driver]Unable to connect to database server: unable to start database engine

ERROR [01000] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] The driver doesn't support the version of ODBC behavior that the application requested (see SQLSetEnvAttr).

Please guide.
