A few weeks ago, I selected a link at the iAnywhere site. My ASA version
was checked and an update was recommended.
If I was not dreaming, would someone supply me with that URL?

Thank you,
Doug Stone

I don't remember exactly which 8.0.x release included it,
certainly if you have 8.0.2 installed you can check for updates
on windows by running:

Start -> Programs -> Sybase SQL Anywhere 8 -> Check for Updates

From the web, one way is to start at http://www.ianywhere.com/ and:

Developer (top menu) -> EBFs/Patches (left menu)
-> SQL Anywhere Studio

then look for your platform and versions. Choose build numbers
that are greater than your current build number (for your
version). You can get the version number using "dbeng? -v" where
the "?" is replaced by the version number of SQL Anywhere you are
using (6, 7, 8, etc...)

BTW: we suggest that if you apply EBFs or VBFs only if you are
experiencing a problem that you believe is addressed in the
particular EBF or VBF. In the software world more than anywhere,
"if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

Hope that helps,

You can manually find any download at http://downloads.sybase.com. Also, the
link is found as a shortcut "Check for Updates" in your ASA8 install
directory with a link "C:\Program Files\Sybase\SQL Anywhere
8\support\upsa32.html".
