The company I work for uses all old software and one
requires SQL Anywhere 5.0. We are updating in the next few
days to Windows 2008 small business server which is a 64bit
OS. Will SQL Anywhere 5.0 work on a 64bit OS like Windows
2008 Small Business server? It is currently working on a
Windows 2003 Small Business Server

Hi Chris,

Obviously, SA 5.0 is out of support and we have not tested this
configuration. This could potentially work, but you have to be careful
regarding certain security conditions that Microsoft has added to Server
2008 from 2003 (similar to the Vista changes from XP). This includes new
features to "avoid", including the UAC user restrictions and where files
can be written to and from (e.g. you can't write to a data file stored
in "\Program Files" anymore).

Best of luck,
