Win x64 system?
Best bet: look in %systemroot%\syswow64\odbcad32.exe (for 32-bit system)
yes Win x64.
and how to look in %systemroot%\syswow64\odbcad32.exe (for 32-bit system)??
please tell me in brief.
Just like you would run any program, basically. E.g. Win+R and type in the command string and hit enter. Or just browse to the .exe file via Windows Explorer and open it.
I have download this exe file after intalled it opens ODBC data source and there is no oracle in XE optiion.
So what can i do??
Here's some possible help. Warning, regedit can cause much havoc to the health of a windows host ... perhaps the registry fixes can help:
what can i do??

I have download this exe file
Try the following:
- open command prompt
- enter command: %systemroot%\syswow64\odbcad32
Now the ODBC admin should open with 32-bit system DSNs and drivers.
On the Drivers tab, you should have a long list of Microsoft* drivers, before "Oracle in XE".
If you don't see it now, your installation might be broken.
I open ODBC data source from administrative tools but in system tab there is no Oracle in XE option present. I tried after re installation of oracle 10g express edition.Same problem still here.

The shortcut in Administrative tools will open the 64-bit "view" of drivers and DSNs, since you have x64 system (shortcut points to system32, by legacy named, which is 64-bit system).
Open, not from Administrative tools, but from path as stated in my previous post. The one under syswow64 - for subsystem Windows (32-bit) On Win 64-bit - will show you the 32-bit drivers.
