My advice is to try to keep 32bit and 64bit programs in the correct folders for ease of working on your system and/or if others need to work on it too. JMHO.
Nobody touches my system but me so it isn't a problem.

Your ODBC appears to be missing, either that or it really is too early for me ......

I can uninstall/reinstall this program, but if control panel is only showing one version of ODBC then wont the results remain the same?

BTW, which version of ODBC is control panel showing? It says 32 bits, but it is running the odbcad32.exe that is in System32 directory, which someone said is the 64 bit version .....

Maybe, however a re-install may fix it. Maybe it is just labeled wrong and really is running in 64bit??

Just tried this, not only did it not work but Windows, in its infinite wisdom, decided to overwrite the boot record. Now I have lost access to the other OS that I had installed on my system.

Well the quickest way to test that is to run the program and then open Task manager under the processes tab, if it says "ODBC (or whatever)*32 then its running in 32 bit

Not missing, just hidden. Only the "regularly used" applets are shown, tucked the rest away.
