The way I've been going today I'm almost afraid to post but here:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Reg: TRegistry;
  Val : TStringList;
  I : Integer;
begin
  Reg := TRegistry.Create;
  Val := TStringList.Create;
  try
    Reg.RootKey := HKEY_CURRENT_USER;
    if Reg.OpenKey('\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI', False)
    then
      begin
        Reg.GetKeyNames(Val);
        For I := 0 to Val.Count - 1 do
          begin
            ListBox1.Items.Add(Val.Strings[i]);
          end;
      end;
  finally
    Reg.CloseKey;
    Reg.Free;
    Val.Free;
    inherited;
  end;

end;

Change these two lines to get the System dsn's on the system

   Reg.RootKey := HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE;
   if Reg.OpenKey('\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI', False)


BTW you also need to add Registry to the uses clause.

add these for the properties....


procedure TForm1.ListBox1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
 Reg: TRegistry;
 Val: TStringList;
 I  : Integer;
 st : string;
begin
 Reg  := TRegistry.Create;
 Val  := TStringList.Create;
 try
   Listbox2.Clear;
   ListBox3.Clear;
   st := ListBox1.Items.Strings[ListBox1.ItemIndex];
   Reg.RootKey := HKEY_CURRENT_USER;
   if Reg.OpenKey('\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI\'+ st, False) then
     begin
       Reg.GetValueNames(Val);
       For I := 0 to Val.Count - 1 do
         begin
           ListBox2.Items.Add(Val.Strings[i]);
           ListBox3.Items.Add('"'+Reg.ReadString(Val.Strings[I])+'"');
         end;
     end;
 finally
   Reg.CloseKey;
   Reg.Free;
   Val.Free;
   inherited;
 end;
end;
