Under Win98, I had similar problems installing ODBC drivers (at some 
point, the ODBC manager seem to become corrupted, and I couldn't 
add new drivers.) Are you able to add another new ODBC driver? 
(You could download MySQL's, for example, & see if that works.)

I solved my problem by going into the registry and deleting the 
ODBC managers keys and reinstalling PostgreSQL w/driver manager. 
I love my other ODBC datasources, but reinstalled those. It's hardly 
elegant, I'm sure they're are better ways, but, hey, it worked for 
me. Your mileage may *definitely* vary, You've been warned, etc.,
