How do I connect Vertica with Toad

I am trying to connect Vertica DB with Toad for Data analysts in a Windows machine. I downloaded vertica odbc driver – vertica_5.1.6_odbc_i386_linux.tar, but am unsure about where to place the .h and other files.  Does anyone have steps on how to setup a Vertica driver and connect to Toad for Data Analysts?

    Since TOAD is on your windows machine, download the Vertica ODBC driver for Windows -- vertica_client_drivers_5.0.2-20110512.exe (32/64 bit).  Install the driver on your Windows system, and create a Vertica connection using Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Administrative Tools –>Data Sources (ODBC). You can then add a new DSN under the System DSN tab.

    That download link now redirects to a confusing location/page http://www.toadworld.com/products/toad-data-point/default.aspx.  Care to update/refresh where to get the download link for this instance of Toad?
