Hi, I installed PostgreSQL but the pgsql ODBC driver didn't appear in the Windows XP Data Sources drivers list. I looked in the Windows registry and all the keys were the way they should be, but still no PostgreSQL ODBC driver!
Googling, I found the following entry on the Oracle(!) forum (see http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=254411&tstart=15):
