Receiving “Unable to determine database level. ProjectPAK cannot continue.” After Updating to ProjectPAK 8.0

If you are bumping into the following error when trying to open ProjectPAK after updating to Version 8.0:

you will need update the TradeSoft17 ODBC entry. To edit the ODBC entry in 64 bit Windows, you’ll access this via C:\Windows\SysWow64\odbcad32.exe.  For 32 bit, you access it via the Control Panel | Administrative Tools | Data Sources. Select the TradeSoft17 entry  under System DSN and click Configure.

Select the Login tab. Make sure that Action is set to “Connect to a running database on another computer”.  Click Ok to save the change.

Here is how mine looks now, as I have my IP and my distinct port.
