in reply to Problems with MySQL on Win32.

Unless I'm missing something (highly possible), couldn't you go into the config of whatever firewall app is running on that Win32 box and allow your app through?

I've recently had to do something similar on my Wife's WinXP box that had some McAfee Internet Firewall thingy installed.

    No, you aren't missing a thing!

    That is exactly the problem. But then we have to deal with Nortons, for example, in a recent live update they set everybodies security at maximum. If a flea scrathed in Uzebekiatan, you got an error message! People condn't even collect their email. So I am loking for a way to talk to MySQL without using a socket. Basically, Windows and Norton and MacAfee's don't know how localhost is spelled, so they just reject ANY attempt to connect to a socket, local or otherwise.

    I need aninstaller to install my product without having to go through lengthy support calls with clients who don't even know what software they have on the computer! Let alone hoe to use it.

      Have you consider/tried the named pipe connection option?
