Is there any way to get .Net to use the MySQL ODBC driver on Windows Server

2003 64-bit and have tried to access the driver using a C#/.Net program. The
error message reads that the driver is not found. The program works fine on
Windows XP 32-bit.

Sources (ODBC). There is not an entry in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC Drivers for the MySQL

myodbc3s.dll was loaded, but the DllRegisterServer entry point was not
This file can not be registered.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
