Where are Data source Names (DSN's) stored?

DSN's were here (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\) in XP.
Where did they go in Win7?

Thanks.

Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

Can it be HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC File DSN\ ?

Mine is set as "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ODBC\Data Sources"

It looks like the old key is 64 bit and the 32 bit is here:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBC.INI]
