I recently installed LibreOffice on my 64 bit laptop and I want to access MySQL databases from Base. I know that I need a connectoy for MySQL so I downloaded the only connector I could find which is mysql-connector-ooo.oxt. When I try to add it I get the following popup message "The extension 'MySQL Connector' does not work on this computer." What am I doing wrong?

LO version is 5.3.7.2 (x64)

Hello,

Not sure from the description which version of the connector that is. It appears to be SDBC 1.0 which I have never gotten to work. There are multiple types of connectors for MySQL - SDBC, JDBC & ODBC. The easiest & fastest is probably the Native SDBC connector. V1.2.0 of the connector (works for me) can be found on this post. You can find JDBC connectors (ODBC also) on MySQL site - click here. The JDBC and ODBC connectors require more to set up than the native connector.
