    Instant Client on 64-bit Windows 7: Driver does not appear in System DSN

      Instant Client on 64-bit Windows 7: Driver does not appear in System DSN tab when creating a new Data source.

      What I did so far:
      I downloaded the basic and odbc zips for Window 64-bit.
      Unzipped the basic zip.
      Unzipped the odbc zip to the same directory.
      Added the dir path to the System Environment Variable called Path.
      Double-clicked on the odbc_install.exe to run it from Windows Explorer.

      Then I tried to add the driver to create a new data source but it does not appear in the list of drivers.

      From a cmd window, I navigated to the instant client directory and tried to run odbc_install again.
      I got the message: Oracle ODBC Driver with same name already exists.

      What am I missing?
