Read the info in the left sidebar: http://windows.php.net/download/  There are compatibility problems and not all extensions and options are available yet.

"php_pdo_odbc.dll" should already be in your extensions directory.  Enable it by uncommenting it in 'php.ini' and restart the server that PHP is running on.  If it's IIS, you may also have to 'uncache' applications to get it to pick up the modified 'php.ini'.  More info on PDO here: http://www.php.net/manual/en/pdo.installation.php

If you are like me, you were testing the PDO-ODBC connection because the native database drivers were not visible to PHP. Furthermore, the MySQL 32 bit drivers did not work in my environment.

Solution: Your environment has to be 64 bit all the way through.

Install 64 bit versions of Apache and PHP. They are not available from official sources. However, kind people have compiled some and made them available for download.

if i am using 64bit windows, do i need to find 64bit php
