ODBC Driver does not appears in the ODBC Data Source Administrator

After installing the MySQL ODBC driver on Windows XP, the driver does not appears in the Drivers tab of the ODBC Data Source Administrator.

Please note that I am answering my own question here in hopes that it may help others that may come across the same issue.

Try using Regedit to view the registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC Drivers

Select and delete the (DEFAULT) string, then restart the computer.

WARNING - WARNING - WARNING: Editing your Registry incorrectly can cause serious, system wide problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system to correct. It is advised that you back up your registry before modifying it.
