>>SQL anywhere is available below

Isn't it interesting the "Try now" link from that page takes you to the exact link I posted above?

Strange!
It is not listed in the SAP software downloads list when I search under "S".

I tried this link posted by Peter and hit "Try Now" and it downloads the SQLA17Developer.exe
https://www.sap.com/products/sql-anywhere.html?btp=d1ad7beb-e9d5-4b10-a4b5-b2ed4e33a203

Is the "Developer" edition the correct product to install?
According to another link posted above it seems there is a difference between developer and actual software.

The link provided by Peter is the same link I posted in the very first post.  Mine just saves you one click.

>>Is the "Developer" edition the correct product to install?

We cannot say because we don't know what you are trying to do.

>>According to another link posted above it seems there is a difference between developer and actual software.

I cannot speak to the exact differences but most developer versions are close to the purchased versions to allow you do develop software that will run on the licensed versions.

I am trying to install PowerBuilder 2019 client/IDE software for demos. The documentation says it requires SQL anywhere 12 thru 17.

The developer version should work but I cannot say 100% for sure.  Download it and see?  Should either work or not for what you are wanting to do.

I'm also not sure how long the developer trial lasts.

The developer version seems to be the same database but free for development purposes.

I downloaded two files:
SQLA17Developer
SQLA17_Windows_Client

When I installed the developer the screens it said it will install the client too. I saw "SQL Central" icon on desktop.
I am not sure whether I need to install the second client installer or not?

Probably not.  Most "server" type programs are self-contained and if a client is needed, it comes with it.

I cannot help with understanding SQL Anywhere and how to use it.

Try it, it should either work or not work.
