Hi
I've added it to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI
Add first desired ODBC entries manually and look what are the appropriate key values

As I understand you need to create an alias on runtime.
If that's what you are looking for then you should see this. It's in delphi and has sourcecode attached.

I've not tried AddAlias but I read the readme, it is to add BDE entry not ODBC, right?
