Where I will get the "Sybase ASE OLE DB Provider" driver for download.
 
I don't have this .dll

Sybase.AseClient.Data.dll on my PC, so where do I get it from?

I tried that already with no luck...

With this site:

https://sybase.subscribenet.com

 you have to have an account as a tech developer registered with them.

No, I don't have access to the Sybase disks..

I'm just wondering why the .dll wasn't part of the VB .Net installation.
