I need to get a list of databases available on a server selected from a listbox (this is filled from the registry).  I have tried the ODBC32 function SQLBrowseConnect, but have been unable to get it to work.  All code samples I've seen are in C.  What's the best way to get this?

What database is on the server. Or is it just a list of access mdb's stored in the registry ?

Do you want to populate a listbox, from the registry ?

To get a list of databases on a SQL server do a select * FROM SysDatabases from the Master database on the server.
