SQL Central won't start

SQL Central/Sybase Central won't start. I can try either short-cut to
two different copies of scview.exe (one installed by SQL Anywhere and
the other by Adaptive Server) and neither can successfully start. They
do not report any dialog box error when started from a shortcut and they
do not report any command line error when started from the command line.
I've searched my entire machine to make sure that there isn't some other
copy of scview.exe and have also used complete paths when trying to
start them from the command line.

I've tried running the Dependency Walker depends.exe from Microsoft on
scview.exe and it can find all the dlls that it thinks scview.exe needs.
However, none of the listed dlls is one from the sybtools directories
listed below.

Running NT4 Workstation with SP3. Have installed:
   Sybase Adaptive Server 11.5 for NT
   Power Designer (not sure if it is relevant or not)
   SQL Anywhere 5.0

I installed SQL Anywhere v5.0 last, then applied the v5.5.04 patches. It
is my understanding that it is okay to apply the v5.5.04 patch to plain
v5.0 database. BTW, SQL Anywhere starts up just fine as does ISQL for it
and MS Access is able to access the sample database via ODBC. So SQL
Anywhere works okay as far as I can tell.

I have
   g:\sybtools\win32            installed by Adaptive Server

I've tried copying dbtl50t.dll from  g:\progs\sqlany50\win32 to both
g:\progs\sybtools\win32 and g:\sybtools\win32 and that didn't help.

I've tried re-running the SQLA v5.5.04 patch several times and also
tried telling it to update into either of the sybtools\win32

I've tried putting the various directories at the front of the PATH
statement. One thing I've noticed though: SQL Anywhere puts its paths on
the local User Variables PATH and Adaptive Server puts its paths in the
System Variables Path.

I've also just  tried re-installing SQL Anywhere v5.0 and overwriting
the v5.5.04 patch files. As a result, when I try to start SQL Anywhere's
copy of SQL Central it now gives an error of "The instruction at
00407f3b referenced memory at 77656966. The memory could not be read
from". But then re-installing the patches causes that error to stop

Also, running regedt32.exe my registry looks reasonable:
   HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sybase\Sybase Tools has
       Location: REG_SZ: g:\progs\sqlany50
    This is a result of my last attempt at reinstalling the v5.5.04
patches to have SQL Central go in with SQL Anywhere.
   this registry has also been:
       Location: REG_SZ: g:\progs\sybtools\win32
       Location: REG_SZ: g:\sybtools\win32
   and in neither case did it help things.
   HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Sybase\Sybase Central\Providers has
       NetImpact Dynamo : REG_SZ : g:\progs\sqlany50\win32\scnetimp.dll
       Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise : REG_SZ :
       Sybase SQL Anywhere : REG_SZ :

One other thing: When typing PATH at the command line it only shows the
stuff from the System Variables PATH statement. It doesn't show the
stuff from my particular user. I don't know NT all that well so I don't
know if that is normal.

I've tried many other things that I'm not going to repeat since my
message is already rather long.

I'm open to suggestions for other things to try and I'll let you know if
I've already tried them ;<

I have ASE 11.5, SQL Anywhere 5.5.03 and PowerDesigner 6.1 installed. 
Works fine.  A lot of good that does you though.  You have gone through
just about everything I would have tried, and a few more.  I would have
thought that reinstalling SQL Anywhere & the 5.5.04 upgrade would have
taken care of it.

About the only difference in what you have and what I have is that on my
system I only have one sybtools\win32 directory instead of the two that you

sql client won't start on SLES10
I'm not the oracle/sql admin (I'm the SLES admin) but I'm trying to help our person resolve an issue. She has installed the sql 10 client ONLY on one of our SLES10.2 servers.

SQL Anywhere run-tmie won't start. Why?
Hi, From time to time I have a situation here where for some reason SQL Anywhere run-time (shipped with PB) does not want to start on a Windows machine (usually Windows ME or 98SE). User types in: "C:\Program Files\Anzasoft\Firma114\rtdsk50.exe" -n test And all he or she gets is a blank SQL Anywhere screen - it just hangs. For some users it starts after, let's say 5 minutes. For 99 percent of users it works like a charm. I wonder if somebody has similar experience? What SQL Anywhere can be waiting for? Thanks, Andrzej Andrzej, Yes, I have see...

Module won't die! Page won't die!
Hi, I've got a module on my page...it's all blanked out...(remnant of the site before it deleted my desktop modules directory and I had to reinstall the modules) that is returning an error. So I tried to delete this module but it won't delete. So I then deleted the page and that worked...except I can't delete the page out of the recycle bin. Any help? Quick Tip, Go straight to the database. Note the tab name, module name and any extra information related to the modules content. 1. If content is stored in table (e.g. HtmlText) go to the modules Table search for deleted modules (IsDeleted or Deleted columns), locate the module/s you wish to permenently remove and note their IDs. Go to the Content table (e.g. HtmlText), search for these module IDs, and remove any entries related to the module IDs. 2. Go to the module Table, note the Tab IDs the module/s are on, and remove the module/s noted in step 1. 3. Go to the Tabs Table and remove the tabs noted in step 2. To pyhsically remove DNN Tabs and their contents, this is the order you should do it in so as to avoid the whole relationship constraints between the tables. Note also, This technique should also work for undeleted tabs, Modules, and content But just watch out for the taborder with tabs, module order with modules and (if applicable) content order (e.g. announcements, MultiPageHTML) as simply deleting may cause a major issue. If in doubt don't touch the database. As always, BACK UP YOUR D...

Real problem
I have a NW5.1 Server with SP8 installed. No fancy stuff, not Zen, etc. While trying to install another SCSI Card to system, overwrote a drive file. To make a long story short, I ended up trying to do an upgrade install and replacing all newer files in hopes that I could then reinstall SP8 and be back where I wanted. No such luck. Server boots and recognizes volumes, but NDS won;t load so I can't login from a workstation or through my backup software (to make a backup and restore to my backup server). What's the best way for me to proceed? Here until the problem i...
