I tried installing ASE 15.5 on a brand new install of
Windows XP (All patched up) and I am getting an error. I
tried it on Windows 2000 box and same error came up:

Error: The installer failed to load
c:\doc...\archives\sylapi\sylapij.dll. Please verify you
have the correct and complete installer image.

I verified anad the file is exactly there.

What am I missing?

Also, where can I get the previous version 12.5. Maybe I'll
have better luck with that.

Thanks.

A common cause for this error is not having required
patches installed on the OS.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package and
KB973544
