Using SQL Anywhere 188.8.131.520 (authenticated edition)
I'm trying to deploy the minimal set of files needed for a 32bit ODBC-based client connnection. I've got to the point where I can add a new ODBC datasource using the Windows control panel program (ODBCAD32.exe) but when I click 'Test connection' I get this error:
I've not included 'dbrsa17.dll' intentionally as the help file suggests that it's only needed for an encrypted connection, which I am not using. Is the error message correct and the DLL must always be included or is this a bug?
(in case it's relevant, the registry entries for my ODBC datasource are below)

This is an error in the documentation. The dbrsa DLL must now always be installed.

Can you point me at the documentation pages that suggest the DLL is only needed for encrypted connections? Those pages are incorrect.
This used to be true in v16 and earlier, but as of v17 both the client and server use this DLL for all connections. It must always be included.
Mark beat me to it by about 40 seconds.
