V 6.1 Crystal 8.5 odbc

Thanks for the responses to my previous questions. Perhaps I can get a
little more info. Installation went ok as far as I can tell, now when I
open a v7.0 report and try to verify database I get an odbc error
message about unable to open parameter file e:epic50/startup.pf, errno.2
(1247) MERANT ODBC Progress driver server parameters required for
remote connection (2574).
are there new odbc drivers required and included w/my upgrade from 4.0
to 6.1 vantage? if so where are they and how do I proceed?
