Watching a video on how to set up Heidisql his network type says:

MairaDB or MySQL (TCP/IP)

mine only says:

MySQL (TCP/IP)

drop down doesn't have MairaDB or MySQL (TCP/IP). When I select open I get an error message saying:

Library libmariadb.dll could not be loaded. Please select a different one. Internal error 5: Access is denied

Any ideas?

Please ignore the fact that the network type is named "MySQL", not "MariaDB or MySQL". This is a minor issue, should not affect anyone in a technical way.

Also, please ensure you have installed the latest version. libmariadb.dll is provided through the installer. If it's missing, you may have done something wrong during the installation, or there may be a privilege problem.
