How to delete System DSN in 64-bit

I wanted to transfer 32-bit ODBC System DSN on XP machine to 32-bit ODBC System DSN on Windows 7 64-bit machine. So, I went to Regedit and exported ODBC.INI folder (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > Software > ODBC > ODBC.INI). From Windows 7, I ran *.reg file and imported. It went successfully, but it was imported into 64-bit ODBC System DSN and I can't delete them. When I tried to Remove, it says "The setup routines for the Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls) ODBC driver could not be found. Please install the driver." I just want to delete them. How can I do that? Thank you very much in advance. HB

Have you used ODBC Administrator to delete them?

Control Panel -> Administrative Tools, and then double-click either ODBC Data Sources (64-bit)
Click the User DSN, System DSN, or File DSN tab.
Select the data source to delete.
Click Remove, and then confirm the deletion.

Have you tried this:

for 64bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI
delete the data source key under ODBC.INI and the entry under ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources linking your data source to the driver

or
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI
