  2. I've tried every combination of the above 'solutions'. None of them worked. Why not make installation software that works or at least correctly identifies the problem! I really hate to flame, but this is just so infuriating... wasting hours and hours for something that should be easy.

    1. Hi Jim, we're not affiliated with MySQL in any way, I just blogged this article as I had the same problem when installing the driver as you're having and was hoping to help others.

      Thanks,


      Dave
