Where's all the ODBC drivers in Windows 7???

New Windows 7 64 Bit installation and old programs.  Excellent explanation on this web page  http://www.vistax64.com/drivers/168477-installing-32-bit-odbc-drivers-vista-x64.html on why they don't show up. I read several accounts that said use c:\windows\sysWow64\odbc32.exe, which I didn't understand. I kept trying to find how to install it to run in the existing ODBC admin from the control panel, but didn't know I was already running that program and the problem is simply that both programs are named the same, one is for 64 bit and one is for 32 bit.  So, just double click the executable in that directory and you'll get a new ODBC admin tool that shows all the missing ODBC drivers.
