Dear all,

Until now I have tried to link to the most up-to-date license from several places. This has caused problems, unfortunately, when the license has expired and been updated. So from now on, I will link to the newest license in this separate blog:

ASE License

Update: 4th December, 2018: Please try this new link. We have been having Sharepoint issues. Unfortunately, as an internal I may not be able to test these. Please let me know if this works.

Thanks for your patience, and best wishes,

    Hi Julie,

    I am currently trying to set up a new AS ABAP 7.51 SP2 virtual machine. Is the procedure for a new installation still to extract a bunch of .tar files, replace the license file, compress them again and then start the installation? Like it is described in this comment.

      Hi Fabian,

      The procedure hasn’t changed, so if that worked for you, then it shoudl also work now. However, I haven’t tested this, since I installed my version before the ASE license expired.

      Best wishes Julie.

      Hi Gaston, As I said:

      I am sorry about the delay. This was a known problem last week, which should now be fixed.

      Are you still getting the error with, eg, part 5?
      Thanks a lot,

    Hello Julie

    How can I get the newest ASE license? The link that you provided i the blog takes me to the logon page. How can I get access to the newest licenses?


    Thank you in advance.

    Hello Julie,


    The sharepoint link is broken. Maybe because the account of your colleague Ralf is deactivated. Could you please reupload the file?

    Thanks in advance

    Tengo la fecha de la licencia ASE caducada, pero cuando realizo la opción dos del blog que me adjunta en tu respuesta “Si es necesario, actualícelo desde aquí: Nueva licencia de Sybase“, no puedo realizar este paso porque me indica ”

    That didn’t work

    We’re sorry, but can’t be found in the directory. Please try again later, while we try to automatically fix this for you.”

    ¿como puedo solucionarlo?, y me podrías explicar mas detalladamente el paso tres “NOTA: No tenemos los recursos para actualizar los archivos .rar continuamente. Por lo tanto, si la versión ha estado disponible durante algún tiempo, es posible que el archivo de licencia yahaya caducado. Si es así, ponga el nuevo archivo .lic en la misma carpeta que el archivo de script, usando el nombre SYBASE_ASE_TD.lic. Nonecesita editar los archivos .tar.”,

    ¿A que carpeta te refieres?

    En la carpeta s4installer tengo el fichero “SAP_COMMUNITY_DEVELOPER_License” este fichero no lo toco no?

    Muchas Gracias y perdona las molestias.

      Hi Jesus,

      I am sorry I don’t speak Spanish. Is this a fair translation?

      Hello I have the date of the ASE license expired, but when I do option two of the blog that you attach to me in your answer “If necessary, update it from here: New Sybase license”, I can not do this step because it tells me ” That did not work We’re sorry, but can not be found in the directory. Please try again later, while we try to automatically fix this for you. ” How can I solve it ?, and you could explain in more detail step three “NOTE: We do not have the resources to update the .rar files continuously. Therefore, if the version has been available for some time, it is possible that the license file has already expired. If so, put the new .lic file in the same folder as the script file, using the name SYBASE_ASE_TD.lic. You do not need to edit the .tar files. “, What folder do you mean? In the folder s4installer I have the file “SAP_COMMUNITY_DEVELOPER_License” this file I do not touch it not? Thank you very much and sorry for the inconvenience.

      Best wishes, Julie.

      If so, then 2 questions / points of information:

      1. Do you have a Sharepoint account?
      2. Step 3: Yes, I mean the s4installer, where the is located. The SAP_COMMUNITY_DEVELOPER_License is NOT the license to which I am referring. (That is a license to develop on the ABAP system.) The license you need is called SYBASE_ASE_TestDrive.lic . It is not normally not stored in s4installer, but deeper. However, in this case, since you are replacing the originally packed license, the install script expects it to be in the same location as the 

      We are currently having issues with Sharepoint, because the eligibility has recently been restricted.

      Best wishes Julie.

    Hi Julie, Any update as to when the license will be available. I can’t install 751 due to the username error, which keeps pointing back to ASE license.

        Hello Angellica,

        If you have problems with the files, it is better that you download and unzip all the .TAR files of this sap abap installation. In decompression, dbexe.tgz-aa file is generated.


        Best Regards,
