Hello,

Here is my configuration:
Sybase Adaptive Server Anywhere 7, version 7.0.4.3472
Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition 64 bit, Physical memory : 2GB

My working directory has the following 4 files:
dbtl50t.dll, isql.exe, asa_bkup.bat, asa_bkup.sql

asa_bkup.bat
set CONN="eng=eng03;dbn=db03;uid=user03;pwd=xyzabc"
isql.exe -c %CONN% -d asa_bkup.sql

asa_bkup.sql
BACKUP DATABASE DIRECTORY 'D:\bkup_data\001'

I double-clicked asa_bkup.bat but it said : "unable to start database engine."
I clicked OK and it displayed another windows to me:

Interactive SQL Login

User ID: user03
Password: ******
Connection Name: (blank, waiting for my entry but I don't know what should I enter)
Database Name: db03
Database File: db03.db
Server: eng03
Startline: (blank, waiting for my entry but I don't know what should I enter)

I enteried arbitrary values to Connection Name and Startline but it still didn't work.
Could you tell are there any wrong in the asa_bkup.bat file?
