I installed ORacle 11g client. I selected the administrator option. When I look at Oracle installed products I see the Oracle ODBC driver. However, When I click on the ODBC data source icon the ODBC Data Source Administrator window opens. When I select Add nothing appears in the Create New Data Source dialog box. I've tried every option I can think of to get access to the Oracle odbc driver. I created the tnsnames.ora file and I am able to connect to a remote database as well as tnsping that service. However, I can't seem to add the Oracle odbc so that other applications can access that database. What am I doing wrong. All the instructions read that I should see the Oracle odbc in the System DSN. However, I don't. what can I do to try to fix this?

Windows 64Bit?

There are two ODBC administrators in 64Bit windows.  Make sure you are using the right one for the bit version of the Oracle client you installed.

    The 32-bit version of the Odbcad32.exe file is located in the %systemdrive%\Windows\SysWoW64 folder.
