Forget the ODBC tables.
Make sure that you put all the relevant ODBC information from the registry into the msi.
HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBC.INI (you need the folders as well as the information withing the ODBC Data Sources SubFolder).
If you need to install a driver, then you need to add information from within HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI (and the appropriate ODBC Drivers SubFolder).

Hope this helps
