In my Win7 64 bits system both connectors install properly.

Which error do you receive?
In your previous bug report you said ODBC Connector installed without errors:

After I download and extract 5.2.5 file, I found one mysql.data for installation which I executed with no error. But I found no driver list in ODBC(both at 32, 64 bit admin) 

After I extract DL For 6.5.4 file, there is no installation file I can executed it

The ID 66499 is for diff release 5.1.11 , What Win 7 type you are using to install both connectors ?

Which Connector driver we are talking about? Is it ODBC or NET?
Please note that we do not have such version of ODBC Connector as 5.2.5.
If it is all about Connector/NET why the report synopsis is "ODBC Connector / Net New Release"?
[28 Aug 2012 13:28] Thomas Lee
All I trying is connector / Net which are the only DL you have

Sorry, I am completely confused.
You are saying that the problem is in Connector/NET driver.
If so, why you are looking in the ODBC Administator?

It will not show the Connector/NET because it has nothing to do with ODBC...
We have Connector/ODBC Driver for that.

I check the control panel/ program feature and see 5.2.5 driver installed but not 6.5.4 release. Is anywhere I can look this driver if not from ODBC Admin?

Now 6.5.4 connector / net installed at Win 2003 server 64 Bit successful. This is what I want it. May it better go through Installer to installed
[24 Sep 2012 4:59] Bogdan Degtyariov
Thomas Connector/NET driver does not support ODBC and therefore it is never shown in the ODBC administrator.
The list of NET data providers installed on your machineYou can be checked in the Visual Studio server explorer by clicking "Add connection" button and then "Change..." in the data source section.

Uploading the screenshot with the dialog I have just mentioned.
