Your link is for the MySQL Server install which does not include all the drivers for different programs.  You need the ODBC driver for it to show up on that list.  However, you probably want the .NET connector to use in your program and it won't show up on that list at all because it is not an ODBC driver.  http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/

Not completely.  The ODBC driver is a generic driver.  The .NET driver is one that can be compiled into your .NET application.  The ODBC driver will show up in the Data Source window where it can be used by any program that uses ODBC.  The .NET driver will not show up there because is not a stand-alone driver but one that is compiled into your program.
