The alternative (especially if you're going to distribute the
application to people without mysql installed on their machine) is to
copy the libmysql.dll to the application directory.
Make sure you use the right one for the particular build (debug for,
well debug, and opt for release builds)

It's right: reinstallation of MySQL may solve this problem. :)
libmysql.dll is the MySQL C API DLL, which should be in the PATH after
MySQL is installed. There's no mention of this in the docs because it
should Just Work (TM).
