Just a follow-up and a clunky work-around.

The work-around involves editing the registry. Registry editing is potentially risky - it is possible to cause your computer not to function. The following is provided "AS IS" and I can't warrant the effect it will have on your computer. Use these changes at your own risk.

The problem persists, but what I have been able to do is to install the 3.51 driver (which has some issues) and configure it to talk to the database. I then went into the registry and modified the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\(DSN name) Driver entry to point to the myodbc5.dll file. Then change HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources (DSN Name) to give the correct driver name (MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver). Our application now talks to the database.

Unfortunately, if I go to the ODBC administrator and attempt to edit the DSN, the result is that the administrator program "Cannot find Driver" and it discards all my carefully crafted settings
