FireDac help needed with Advantage Database

I have several applications that use Advantage Database tables. I'd be open to switching to something else if there was a way to convert to another format. For now I am trying to get away from using their components since they don't keep up with the Rad Studio releases. Their last update was for the 'Seattle' version.

So I tried to connect to a free table as well as a table in a dictionary. I can't connect to any table! I'm not sure what I am missing. I put a few pics with the error messages I am receiving

I found a few examples for FireDac, but none are for the Advantage database. What I need is to know the most basic way to connect to a table, and show the data in a DBGRID. I'm missing something simple!

Thanks for the help!
