Many thanks for your response. Luckily, one of the brilliant people I am fortunate to work with (not me!) solved this.
Of course, the drivers are 32-bit but, because we are running 64-bit Windows, we realized that we should use the ODBC Manager within the 64-bit drivers folder, even to manage these 32-bit PostgreSQL drivers.
It's a bit intra-hypo-counter-intuitive, but it works!
Thanks for the help. Lou

There are 2 kinds of applications on 64-bit Windows, 32-bit ones and
64-bit ones. Registry editor or ODBC Administrator has both versions
and please use 32-bit ones to handle 32-bit drivers.
