Vista and MySQL compatibility problem

  1. Hi,

    I have a group of applications using MySQL. They are developed on an XP computer using Visual Studio 6 and runs OK on that computer.

    Now I have a new computer running Visa Home Premium. I have downloaded and installed MySQL 5.0 and the database is running OK - verified by use of DB utility SQLyog.

    However, when I try to run the applications I get an error message telling me that the libmySQL.dll could no be found. I have also tried to include the MySQL\bin directory in the path, but no success.

    I have tried both using the .exe files built on the XP system as well as rebuilding the apps on the Vista system using Visual Studio 2008 - no progress.

    Any ideas ? :confused:
    I would appreciate any help :wave:.

    I installed MySQL at c:\MySQL and thus find libmySQL.dll in three places

    MySQL\MySQL Admin 1.1\
    MySQL\MySQL Query Browser 1.1\
    MySQL\MySQL Server 4.1\bin

    Suggest you add yourinstall\MySQL Server 4.1\bin to %PATH%

    I mistyped, of course I added the full path to MySQL\bin to the PATH environment:

    ...;D:\Sw\MySQL Server 5.0\bin;...

    a) is the file there?

    b) did you look in the other two dirs?
