mySQL ODBC Error

"The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application"

I'm using WAMP on 64-bit Windows 7. Turns out when you go to ODBC connections through control panel that brings up the 64-bit connections. I had to go to c:\windows\sysWOW64\odbcad32.exe to setup the connection for 32-bit on a 64-bit OS.
Works great!

To manage a data source that connects to a 32-bit driver under 64-bit platform, use c:\windows\sysWOW64\odbcad32.exe. To manage a data source that connects to a 64-bit driver, use c:\windows\system32\odbcad32.exe. In Administrative Tools on a 64-bit Windows 8 operating system, there are icons for both the 32-bit and 64-bit ODBC Data Source Administrator dialog box.
