    Hi All,

    Currently i am doing a MySQL connection from Visual Basic using a DSN.

    The ODBC driver is 3.51 for MySQL

    The MySQL version I use is 4.1.

    What happens is that things run fine from the  Visual Basic IDE but when I create an .exe the connection is not established...

    In sense that the exe throws an error like " cannot connect to mysql instance on localhost."

    I am not able to make sense why the exe wont run and why the program runs from the ide.

    I believe it would be an issue with paths on my machine..can anyone help
