​Is SQLA16_Windows_Client SDK free?

Is SQLA16_Windows_Client SDK free? If not then, what License do I need to use it for one of our .Net program to just extract the data from database?

    You will require a license to access a database. You may have sufficient licensing already if you have a database. Your existing database server might allow unlimited concurrent connections or may have sufficient named user licenses to perform this extraction. Additional, the remote client can serve a standalone use. You may be able to use a developer edition license depending on the exact nature of the work that you are doing i.e., an extraction in a development context, you would not be allowed to use that license in a production usage case.


    A bit of a clarification from your question yesterday about using the BPPM SQL Anywhere database instance. If that have available licensing, you can do read-only access to the database for the application which that database is licensed.

    • I think you should raise this topic with the BMC product organization . They can assist with determining if your planned usage is permitted by their licensing for both BMC and the embedded SQL Anywhere software. They should also be able to assist with getting you the necessary client software.
