    Hello,
    The upgrade from 15.0.2 to another 15.X. can be done directly.
    So you donwload the new binaries for the 15.7, and install, it will install the new version over the old.
    is pretty much a normal installation. In the end of the upgrade, you will have to run installmaster script. To update system tables.

    In the documentation there is reference to upgrade.
    Installation of Version 15.7 Over an Existing 15.x Adaptive Server

    There you go

    Hey,
    just execute the setup.bin normally it will check that there is another version of sybase and install over it.
    So it will be the new version, but not fresh, it will be over your current data on the database.

    Just read all the questions it will be enough for you to understand what to do.

    Cheers

    Hey,

    Yes i supose you have an Sybase account, in there you can find, ase 15.7 enterprise edition, also you should have a license from sybase.
    If you are just playing with the servers, for free the developers is the only one available for trial.

    Cheers
