I'm having a similar problem as below  (I installed an ODBC driver, but I'm not getting any 
sort of ODBC link in my Control Panel like my book (Stones & Matthew, 
"Beginning Databases with PostgreSQL", 2001) says I should). 

I'm a total newbie to this, though, so I just assumed I did something wrong. 

I'm running WinXP Professional, and I downloaded and installed

And, like I said, I'm getting nothing on 'Control Panel'.  According to my 'Add 
& Remove Programs' tool, though, it _is_ installed.  What do I need to do?

Please help - I don't know how to move forward, and I'm getting a headache 
from banging my head against the monitor.

It's certainly a 32 bit driver (I know, I compiled it!). I have seen
this *once* before, and unfortunately the machine in question was only
fixed with a reinstall of Windows iirc. You might try an MDAC update
from - that might sort out and messed up ODBC
files or settings.
