I am told by SAP I need to install an ODBC driver on a Windows 2008 64 bit server that will function as a Crystal Report server that will access an SQLAnywhere 10 db on another server.   Other windows clients are using version 10.0.1.3807 of the driver to access that database.   We have a license to install it but the version I found to download as SQLanywhere sql1001win3264 is the whole database which I do not want to install because there are already 2 other databases on this system.  If I deselect everything except "network database client" is that going to install just the ODBC drivers?  Or what should I select or download?

SQL Anywhere has a deployment msi you can use to install just the driver..

It is named SQLAnyDeploy.MSI

If you have anywhere installed already on a computer then as I understand it you use the deployment wizard to create the MSI.  It has been over 4 years since I went that route but here is some information on the subject.

Brook, the article states that "Deployment Wizard does not include support for creating deployments of the 64-bit software components"   which unfortunately is exactly what I need.

Try just creating the driver - then add the driver to your 64bit ODBC Administrator manually.

Apparently I didn't have the full install, but the Deployment wizards is an option when you do an install of SQL Anywhere.  Once I did the install on another system I was able to run the Deployment Wizard and generate an install file as mentioned (SQLAnyDeploy.MSI) with either /both the 32 bit /64 bit ODBC drivers.   Running the .msi file on the server finally got me to the final destination.  

thanks
