3004717 - DBISQL does not open in ASE 16.0 SP03 PL09 - SAP ASE


  • After upgrading ASE from 16.0 SP03 PL04 to SP03 PL09 in a Windows Server 2012 environment
    • Interactive SQL (DBISQL) does not open when starting it from the Windows Start Menu. 
    • Only the "fast launcher" icon is seen at the system tray.
    • Only after clicking the system tray icon and selecting Open that Interactive SQL opens. 
  • If "fast launcher" is not enabled (Tools --> Options)
    • DBISQL never opens, and there is no system tray icon. 
    • Windows Task Manager shows a "SQL Anywhere ISQL" process, but there is no DBISQL window.
  • In ASE 16.0 SP03 PL09, DBISQL uses SAP JRE 8.  Confirm by looking at the DBISQL-16_0\bin\dbisql.ini file.
