When I uninstall the old driver and install the newer driver it is not
available in admin tools data sources as a driver to select from to
configure any type of DSN. In addition, when I have attempted to use the
newer MSI packages to install the ODBC it registers in the local machine
but not the current user. Any thoughts?

Thank you for your support.

Why are they unable to connect? The driver is backwards compatible with 
older servers, and the server is backward compatible with the older
