libmysql.dll not useable

tbop posted 4 years ago in General
Hi there,

When I try to open a session with my database an error dialog appears and tells me:

Can't find a usable libmysql.dll. Please launch heidisql.r3700.exe from the directory where you have installed it.

Of course heidisql.r3700.exe is already launched from the same directory.

What can I do?

Thanks

Ok, stupid. I downloaded the executable instead of the installer.

Sorry about this useless topic.

No problem, thanks indeed. I had recently implemented this nicer error dialog where it was an ugly access violation earlier. Just I was a bit unsure about the phrasing. Do you think I should rephrase that?

so i can't download executable and run on it's own? i am getting same message. Going to use installer instead of executable now. hopefully that will run :)

No, HeidiSQL definitely needs a fitting libmysql.dll . This can also be one somewhere in your Windows directory or in the path environment, but if you never installed one then you need the HeidiSQL installer once.
