Oracle 10g: ODBC on a 64 bit machine [ENG]

Ok, I admit I didn't see that coming.
After installing Oracle 10g 32 Bit Client on a Windows 2K8 64 bit machine ODBC drivers were nowhere to be found.
The trick is (apparently) of abysmal stupidity: you have to launch an EXE (C:\WINDOWS\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe) to make them show up in Administrative Tools / ODBC Data Sources.
Thanks to Nicolas Gerard for saving my bacon with his precious hint.
More about this here (thanks to Paolo C. for the link).
