You have to create a DSN, by yourself.

Because you didn't install it.
So, reexecute OUI and choose the option to install ODBC.

You should have OUI in your Windows menu -> Oracle/your Oracle home/Oracle Installation Products/Universal Installer.
You also have it in any Oracle distribution, for instance the client one you need to install Oracle ODBC driver.

"Any website", when Oracle is concerned, is OTN Download page.

I'm afraid that 10g products are no more available online, you have to open a SR to Oracle to get it.
What prevent you from using the 11g client?

So you now use a Windows driver and not an Oracle one; why do you hide this information?

A simple search on Google copying and pasting your error message:
http://www.google.com/#hl=fr&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=%22The+specified+DSN+contains+an+architecture+mismatch+betwee n+the+Driver+and+Application%22
gives me at first link:

Quote:
The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the Driver and Application
To resolve this error, use the 32-bit odbcad32.exe to configure or remove the DSN.

Michel
