How to run Sybase Central on Windows Server 2008


Please help me solve the problem.

I installed the system erp6.0 ehp6 Sybase ASE on Windows Server 2008 x64

Now I want to look at the state of the database, perform a backup.

In the tr. DBACOCKPIT, I can't do that - there is a dump:

Category               ABAP Programming Error
Except.                CX_SY_REF_IS_INITIAL
ABAP Program           CX_DBA_ROOT===================CP
Application Component  BC-DB-DB6
Date and Time          04.04.2013 16:38:35

Short text
     Access via 'NULL' object reference not possible.

What happened?
     Error in the ABAP Application Program

     The current ABAP program "CX_DBA_ROOT===================CP" had to be
      terminated because it has
     come across a statement that unfortunately cannot be executed.

Error analysis
     An exception occurred that is explained in detail below.
     The exception, which is assigned to class 'CX_SY_REF_IS_INITIAL', was not
      caught in
     procedure "HANDLE_EXCEPTION" "(METHOD)", nor was it propagated by a RAISING
     Since the caller of the procedure could not have anticipated that the
     exception would occur, the current program is terminated.
     The reason for the exception is:
     You attempted to use a 'NULL' object reference (points to 'nothing')
     access a component (variable: "NAV_REF->MSGWINDOW").

I need to install the necessary notes.

But before that I need to make a backup and expand the tablespace.

I learned that there is a tool to connect to the database - Sybase Central

But I don't know how to run it?

Please tell me where this tool?

In the directory: Sybase/SLM/Shared/Sybase Central 6.0.0/win64 i have only 2 files:



How can i run Sybase Central?
