You can get it from your registry windows file. There is some sample on how to get this information :

var
  AppRegistry: TRegistry;
  RegistryPath, FPath: string;

begin

  AppRegistry := TRegistry.Create;
  try
     RegistryPath := '\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\accesdb';
    AppRegistry.OpenKey(Format('%s', [RegistryPath]),True);
    FPath := AppRegistry.ReadString('DBQ');
  finally
    AppRegistry.Free;
  end;
   

when accesdb is your ODBC Alias

Check also if this path is correct but have to be for your ODBC Instances becuase is standard.

to check use regedit and look for it on HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\
