Defect/Enhancement Number
When the 64-bit version of Windows is running, the Progress install properly registers all ODBC drivers - they are just in a different place on x64. 

64-bit ODBC on a 64-bit Windows puts its registry entries here:

32-bit ODBC on 64-bit Windows puts its registry entries here:

The 64-bit ODBC drivers can be configured from the executable here (which is the default under Administrative tools:

%SystemRoot%\system32\odbcad32.exe or %WINDIR%\System32\odbcad32.exe

The 32-bit drivers cannot be found under the 64-bit ODBC Datasource Administrator as they are created on the 32-bit side of the x64 system.
In order to configure the 32-bit DataDirect Driver, a different DSN Administrator executable needs to be run in order to configure the 32-bit ODBC Drivers.

Create a desktop icon pointing to the following location:

This will start the ODBC Data Source Administrator and from here, it is possible to configure the 32-bit ODBC drivers provided with the license installed.

(The default 64-bit DSN Administrator executable to configure 64-bit ODBC Drivers only is located %WINDIR%\System32\odbcad32.exe)
