Normally what I do is that I download the Oracle client and the client comes with the ODBC driver.

Do you have an Oracle client installed in your PC?

So, when you select the "Drivers" tab, what do you see there?

Which Oracle client version do you have installed?

The Microsoft drivers for Oracle site on top of the Oracle client install.

You need the correct bit version for the drivers you need.

You need to make sure you are running the correct one.

As far as seeing the Microsoft ODBC driver for Oracle, you need to install the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC).:
