ODBC Data Source Administrator

Why doesn't dotConnect for Oracle show up in the Drives tab of ODBC Data Source Administrator?

We do not offer the ODBC drivers because ADO.NET + Oracle Client works faster than anything with ODBC.

Some programs like Altova MapForce allow you to construct a connection to a datasource using their wizard. The wizard populates a list of drivers from the ODBC Data Source Administrator driver list. Do you know how one could use dotConnect for Oracle in this situation?

We don't provide our customers with ODBC drivers. The reason is described in the post by AndreyR.
