    Installing ODBC driver via Instant Client

    2d2a22ee-1912-448d-b5be-9f5151a990e9

      I downloaded the instant client instantclient-basic-windows.x64-12.2.0.1.0.zip from Instant Client for Microsoft Windows (x64) 64-bit.  The installation instruction ODBC Instant Client Release Notes mentions to unzip (I unzipped in instantclient_12_1 folder) and run odbc_install.exe for Windows Installing Oracle Instant Client ODBC.  However there is no odbc_install.exe file under instantclient_12_1 folder.  I followed another instruction to set PATH env variable to include path to this instantclient_12_1 folder,  but I dont see Oracle ODBC driver in the ODBC Data Source Administrator to configure a data source.

      How do you install this ODBC driver and make it available in Windows ODBC Administrator?  I am trying to connect to an Oracle db from Crystal Reports tool.

      Thanks.
