  • Question

  • I'm trying Visual Basic 2010 Professional for evaluation and am trying to connect to our MySQL database.  I receive the following error:

    HY000 [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver][mysqld-4.0.15-nt]Driver doesn't support this yet

    Do I need a driver?  (I really love the new IDE, we currently run VB6.)

    Thank you.

  • Have you tried using the MySQL .NET Connector instead? Probably preferable to the ODBC driver.

  • No, I haven't, I'll give it a try.  Thanks.

    The download required a different version than Visual Studio 2010.  The problem turned out to be a wrong server designation.
