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:


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