We have a very old Visual Basic software with a connection to a Sybase 9.0.2 database on a Windows Server 2003.

We want to change the hardware (Server) to a newer one with a new Windows System (ex 2008/2012/2016)

We can't update the Sybase Version because we have many old database-archive-files in 9.0.2 version and we are working with some special batch commands directly to Sybase dll-files.

Is Sybase 9.0.2 working on Windows 2008/2012/2016? Which problems are known?

Thank you for helping!

I used Wayback Machine to load an archived version of this document that includes SQL Anywhere 9.0.2. It did support Windows 2008 (requiring last update for UAC support or UAC could be disabled). It was not tested on 2012 and 2016.

Hello Frank

The Tag used (SAP Sybase Mainframe Connect) for this post was incorrect. As your question is on SQl Anywhere, I have changed it to 'SAP SQL Anywhere'

You mention the version of Visual Basic is very old, and this also applies to the version of SQL Anywhere.

SQL Anywhere 9 was End of Mainstream Maintenance (End of Life) as of 31 Jan 2010, so over 8 years ago. It is so old there is no certification information published anymore.

Please refer to this Wiki page for overview of Maintenance status for various releases and certification info going back to SQL Anywhere 11:

FWIW, you will need a later release of ASA 9.0.2 (such as 9.0.2.3951, I think minimally something in the build 9.0.2.386x range) to fully support Windows 2008 R2 Server. Do you want o run the database engine as 32-bit or 64-bit process? - Cf. several qustions in the separate SQL Anywhere Forum, such as this one.
