Sybase ASE 15.5 Setup failure

Help,
  I've built a clean Windows 2003 Server R2 (32 bit)  and patched it (In Microsoft Virtual Server)
Running 1 Gig of ram and 16 Gig hard drive

I went to sybase and downloaded latest ASE 15.5, but when I run setup.exe, it starts to load, then throws an errror dialog box saying "Failed to Load Library" "Error: The installer failed to load C:\Setup\archives\sylapi\sylapij.dll.  Please verify you have the correct and complete installer image".

  I tried installing Java, substituting e: c:\setup\ , nothing seems to work to get me past this.
Any ideas?

Try right clicking the setup.exe and setting it to Vista compatibility mode.

There was a known issue with 64-bit versions needing compatibility mode. I'll keep looking for other ideas.

SyLAPI is the Sybase Licensing API for "SySAM", the Sybase Software Asset Manager.

ie. you haven't even got as far as installing ASE yet, this is a problem at the licensing level.

The VM itself shouldn't be a problem, I've had no problems installing & creating ASE 15.0.x instances but maybe this is something 15.5 specific...

... ah, and it seems that's the issue. There's a known problem with the 15.5 SySAM stuff. Some files are missing. Separately install the license manager first, then try again with your ASE install:
