Try using the debug/libmysqlclient.lib; Just set the environment
variable MYSQL_DEBUG to d:t:o,\\temp\mysqld.trace in your environment
to force a trace file!
The trace file may contain something that may be useful!
How do you connect to 'mysql'; With 'localhost' or 'your-hostname' ?
'localhost' will use NT sockets while 'your-hostname' will require
TCP/IP and will need DNS to resolve the hostname.
Do you have TCP/IP installed?
Have you tried to put your hostname in the \nt\hosts file (or
something like that)
