Yours is the first post to this list mentioning 6.0.
I think most MySQL++ users are pretty conservative, using only GA
releases of MySQL. I haven't even seen reports from people talking
about using MySQL++ with MySQL 5.1 yet, and it went GA about a week ago.

This is nothing to do with MySQL++. You'll need to chase that problem
in a more appropriate forum.

You can't use multiple C++ compilers to create an executable. It's
virtually forbidden by the standard, and impossible in practice as well.
If you want to switch entirely to MinGW, there is plenty of
information on how to build MySQL++ with it in README-MinGW.txt and in
this mailing list's archives.

I don't really know what's gone wrong for sure, but my guess from what
you wrote above is that resetdb.exe isn't actually built yet.

It should work, but I can't see that it gives you any advantages. I'd
install 5.0 on the development system as well. Virtually all of the
benefits from using a newer version of MySQL are on the server side,
not the client side.
