Where to install a db connector?

I have a Windows machine where I wanted to test a simple console example program that connects to MariaDB using QODBC connector (downloaded and installed from MySQL website). The connector was recognized on the administrative tools as a data source (The ODBC Unicode 8.0 driver), configured the connector inputing the parameters of my database, ip, user and password with no problem.
Then made a test inside the program and connection was success..
Now, my client and server test was done using the same machine so I'm wondering where do I need to install and set the ODBC connector?.. client or server side?
If client side, then does that means each client needs to configure its ODBC connector each time him/her install the program?

ODBC connector is a client-side connector to a database. So needs installing on each client, and needs whatever configuration there.
I don't know what installation tool you are going to use (e.g.
windeployqt?). and whether that will offer some way of doing the configuration at that point.
