    I have a new MAC M3 max
    Running Windows 11 pro
    When I search for ODBC the only one that comes up is the 32-bit. I right click and view location and open the 64 bit version. But I cannot add or configure existing connections see screenshot. I am currently trying to add a Cloudera Impala connection: getting error 193 "the setup routines for the Cloudera ODBC driver could not be loaded to to system error code 193. but is a similar message when trying to configure the Excel USER DSN.

    I was having this problem on my Win 11 64 ARM VM when trying to set up a Snowflake driver. I noticed that the links in the Start Menu for 32 and 64 both point to the same, wrong executable for the ODBC Administrator console. Windows version build fail, perhaps. The right one is C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe . When I ran that I was able to set up my driver and use it properly. Even though this is the expected path for the 64 bit console, it reports itself to be for 32 and I think it uses 32 bit drivers. You might want to try installing both versions of you driver.
