Office 95 does not. Office 97 puts it in C:\Windows\System32, together 
with a lot of other ODBC dlls, for example odbccp32.cpl and odbcad32.exe 
(a configuration tool for ODBC data sources).

Right now only Office 2003 is in the application DB. "MS Office Setup" 
is also listed as an application. We probably have to add entries to 
every stand-alone application too (Access, Excel). Anybody wants to do this?
