Andy have you rebooted the PC since installing the software?

Sybase adds a line to your C:\autoexec.bat file, which says something like
Call C:\sybase\bin\wsybset.bat

This batch file sets up all the Sybase environment variables.

As this is put into the autoexec.bat file, then it needs to run to be able
to function correctly.

Also, if you have moved Sybase, then this line may no longer be correct, and
possibly the information contained within the file may be wrong too.

Another time that I have experienced this sort of thing is if the path
variable gets screwed by having too many ; in it.

This can happen by having something like the following

Set PATH=C:\windows;C:\windows\com;
Set PATH=%PATH%;C:\fredbloggs;

Path variable statements should not have ; at the end of them. Ensure that
any path statements DO NOT end in ;

Hope this is of use to you.

Alan Ramsay

Thanks. I have verified all of that. It still is a problem. Any other
suggestions?

Search your hard disk and see how many versions of libtcl.dll there are. You may
be picking up a bogus one from an old installation. The one you want to load
should be the one in %SYBASE%\dll.

cheers,
