Hmm interesting.
I know that the files of OleDB Providers are installed in Program Files\Common\System\OleDB
I check if something can be found in registry

I know that the files are installed in Program Files\Common\System\OleDB

In the registry, look up all the classes (IN HKEY_LOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\CLSID\ )with SubKey "OLE DB Provider", the default property of this SubKey gives the Display Name of the Providers...

Hope this helps
