    Click the Windows Start button and type in odbc it will display the 64 bit odbc sources application.
    But beware if you want to create odbc sources for 32 bit applications you cannot use this.

    You must use instead C:\Windows\System32\odbcad32.exe

    And you can access it by typeing odbcad32 in the windows Start button search box.
