Missing Sybase ASE ODBC Driver in Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-722430910 posted


    I'm an ASP .Net developer and I have this application that queries from a Sybase 12 database in a database server.
    Previously, I had Sybase 12 Open Client in my Win XP machine and I had the Sybase ASE ODBC Driver listed in the ODBC Data Source Admin screen.
    My connection string is something like this: "Driver={SYBASE ASE ODBC Driver};Database=mydb;NA=something;uid=something..."

    However, a few weeks ago, our machines were upgraded to Win7.
    I found out that I have Sybsae 15 Open client in my machine now and I can't find the Sybase ASE ODBC Driver in the ODBC Data Source Admin screen, so it must not be installed.
    When I asked the people here responsible for the Win7 upgrade, they said that the Sybase 12 driver is no longger compatible with Win7.

    How am I supposed to continue working on the application I'm developing? Is there a Sybase ASE ODBC Driver for Win7 that I need installed? I just need something that will allow my code to connect to the same Sybase 12 database as it had been doing before.

    In the ODBC Data Source Admin page, I can also see an Adaptive Server Enterprise driver (version 15), but when I tried this in the connection string, I encounter errors when calling stored procs, so I think maybe that's not the way to go. (Besides, I also had this driver in WinXP and we never used it)

    Please help :(

    If you want a Sybase provider, you need to talk to Sybase.

    How am I supposed to continue working on the application I'm developing?
    Ask your sysadmins.

    Asking the admins was my first move and they, in turn, told me to ask the DBAs, who are not replying to me

    Hence, I posted this question because I'm hoping someone will have an idea. Or point me in the right direction.

    I'm also trying to get the details of our sybase support, but it's taking too long.

    I'm thinking that the sysadmins may just be overlooking something, that there may be a Sybase ODBC ASE Driver installer for windosw7 available that they just dont know about.
