ODBC Driver not appearing after ODBC Instant Client install

Hello,

I have unzipped Oracle Instant client 11.2.0.2 and installed the ODBC instant client in the same path as the Oracle instant client.  Then, I ran the odbc_install.exe, but the ODBC Oracle Driver does not show up in the ODBC Data Source Administrator.  

I have set the PATH and the TNS_ADMIN to c:\oracle\client, which is where the Oracle Instant client 11.2.0.2 is unzipped.

Can you help get this ODBC Oracle driver to appear in the ODBC Data Source Administrator?

I am on a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine.

Is the Windows server 64Bit?

Did you install the correct Bit version of Oracle for the Bit version of the ODBC administrator you are using?

Windows has two ODBC admin tools:

Yes, 64 bit version.

Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard.

I installed the 32 bit version of the Oracle instant client and ODBC diver, because the client application that would be using the Oracle driver is 32-bit based.

Which ODBC Admin tool did you run?

You need this one:
 %systemdrive%\Windows\SysWoW64\Odbcad32.exe
