When attempting to install ASE CLient on a WIndows XP
machine I get the error "The version information file
'null\vpd.properties' is not writable" can someone provide
me with a fix for this issue?

The vpd.properties file contains version specific information. It is
used to tell Sybase installer what software version are installed.

From your message 'null\vpd.properties' there looks to be something
wrong with the path. Did you enter a path for the Sybase install
directory? Is it writeable by you?

Tell us more about what you have already installed, what version you
are trying to install. I assue this is the PC Client disk. Is this
true?

Is this a remote install? Is %sybase% set? In your %sybase% directory
there should be a log.txt file. Look at it, does it tell anything.

Might need a Tech Support case to work through this.
