Mysql probem on windows box

  • freshly installed windows xp en with sp2, updated.
  • Ruby installed from one-click package (tried with ruby184-16p3.exe and
    ruby184-17_rc2.exe as well).
  • mysql installed: gem install mysql (mysql 2.7.2006.04.21 (mswin32))

and when trying to load mysql irb: require ‘mysql’ a windows error
message popup’s: “(title: ruby.exe - unable to locate component)
This application has failed to start because LIBMYSQL.dll was not
found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.”

i think there can be some kind of problem with the mysql 2.7.2006.04.21
version, coz i haven’t got any problems with the previous one (btw. how
to find/install the previous version?)

you need to get this dll stupid! :smiley: the best way is to use
one from the official mysql client:
