SAP SQL Anywhere 17 - Server must be upgraded to start database



I'm running into quite the puzzling error:
Connection failed: Unable to start specified database: Server must be upgraded

I have already cross-referenced the following links:
SQL Anywhere Help Portal Errors

Database cannot be started -- server must be upgraded to start (capability 40 missing)

In my particular instance though, I am attempting to use the ODBC connection to use SQL Anywhere 17 (v to access a Sybase 17.0 database through Access. Normally, I would use a "newer" version of SQL Anywhere, but I have the newest version that is available to developers. What am I missing? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
