We are attempting to use MicroSoft Access 2007 on a 64-bit install of
windows-7 to connect via ODBC to our mysql install on a unix variant
The 64-bit ODBC installs with no errors; but we cannot see the
driver/listing within the "Create New Data Source" dialog window. Which
means we cannot connect to the mysql server (machine).
I guess you need to use %windir%\System32\odbcad32.exe to see 64bit
drivers and create DSN's.
%windir%\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe will show you 32bit drivers.
If you use 32bit applications on 64bit OS you will still need 32bit odbc
driver. But from your letter I got an impression that your application
is 64bit, that is only that you use wrong ODBC administrator.
