How to set the language for UI of Sybase Central.. It appears it's taking the language settings from Windows, but having e.g. an English Sybase Central on a German Windows -- how to achieve this?

For database server and other tools it can be set either via SALANG environmental variable or via the tool dblang. On Linux you can just say somethng like

LANG=C scjview 

but this seems not to work on Windows.

You can use the dblang command, but you need to disable fast launcher first.

See this for reference: Changing administration tool language settings

  • Even after deactivating of fast launcher it does not work. dblang is showing EN as user language, but scjview is starting with DE.

    Just tried it on a clean Windows with a complete fresh installation of SQLAnywhere12 with PL90 and it appears to work. On other system maybe issue due to installation of different versions at the same time etc.
