How to start DBArtisan when you have Sybase Openclient 15 installed

It may not be commonly known, but Embarcadero’s DBArtisan (a database management tool) will NOT work with Openclient 15.  Did you know that there is a way for you to enjoy Openclient v15 and DBArtisan?  This will allow you to retain the system wide settings for v15 of Sybase Openclient:

  • You need to install v12.5 Openclient (or just copy the %SYBASE% directory from a machine with Openclient v12.5 installed). 
  • Create a text file called DBArtisan.cmd , replacing the paths and the name of the dbartisan executable as necessary:

 

@echo off
set SYBASE=C:\Sybase12.5
set SYBASE_OCS=OCS-12_5
set SYBASE_SYSAM=SYSAM-2_0
set SYBROOT=C:\Sybase12.5
set SYBASE_JS=JS-12_5
set SYBASE_JRE=C:\sybase12.5\Shared\Sun\jre142

start "C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\DBA813" DBArt813.exe
  • Create a short cut to the DBArtisan.cmd file with the right clicking on the file and choosing "Create Shortcut"
  • If you want the shortcut to use the same icon as DBArtisan:
  • right click on the file, choose "Properties"
  • "Change Icon"
  • Replace text with "%ProgramFiles%\Embarcadero\DBA813\DBArt813.exe" or wherever your DBArtisan executable is
  • Choose the icon and hit "OK"
