Starting off with MySql ODBC

I am developing with VB6 (DAO or ADO) and converting to MySql.
I downloaded the Connector/ODBC 8.0.11 and used the msi install.
As I understand it, I must include a reference to that connector in my project, but I do not find the connector under my available references. If I need to browse for it, I do not know what I will be searching for and where. I presume the api was registered when I installed it

I use this construct to open my database, but it gives me the error: ODBC call failed.

Set conn = ws.OpenConnection("ibsmsmariafreestate", dbDriverNoPrompt, False, "odbc;DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 5.2 driver";SERVER=localhost;DATABASE=ibsmsmariafreestate;")

Is there perhaps a tutorial that I can use to go through this drama and pain.
