How are you connecting... using the Progress ODBC?
Is the password saved/stored with the data source connection?

the data source doesn't have a password.
Using the progress ODBC for 11.3 - Progress told me to use it.  Data Direct isn't there as an option

How did you create the ODBC connection?
The 32-bit ODBC application is in Windows/SysWOW64.  If you run through th start menu or control panel that is the 64-bit version
