Connecting to Advantage DB in Python 3.6

I'm running into a problem trying to connect to an Advantage Database using Python. The existing python library doesn't work for me since I'm using Python 3.6. I've downloaded the v 11 ODBC driver & ACE. I'm using pyodbc and was able to get it to use the driver with with the connection string. I was able to fumble my way through to get it to no longer error when connecting, but now I'm getting a 1500 error whenever I try to execute a command. Checking the documentation, it says to check that icudt40l.dat are both deployed. I've verified both the client and server have them installed. Has anybody run into a similar issue? Or know of a better way to connect to the database using python 3.6 on linux?

Client: Ubuntu 18.04, Python version 3.6, pyodbc, Advantage ODBC driver, ACE

Server: Windows Server 2012 R2, Advantage DB

    Have you checked your ads_err.adt and ads_err.dbf files to see where the server is expecting to find these files?
