The PATH Command Was Longer than 128 Characters
The installation program cannot make the required changes to the AUTOEXEC.BAT file Path statement if the statement is longer than 128 characters. Program startup depends upon finding the SQL Anywhere 7 directory using the Path statement.
From a DOS prompt, type SET and then press the Enter key.
The Path= statement should contain a reference to SQL Anywhere 7 (C:\…\SQLANY~1\Win32).
If the reference to SQL Anywhere 7 does not display in the Path statement, the AUTOEXEC.BAT file needs to be edited. Insert the reference to SQL Anywhere 7 close to the beginning of the Path statement. (e.g., Path=C:\Windows\Command; C:…\SQLANY~1\Win32;…)
Save any changes to the AUTOEXEC.BAT file and reboot the computer.
