Using latest VS2008 and MySql with MyDirect.Net.

I keep getting this error:  "Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)"

It happends when I call GetData in the table adapter.  (I'm using an XSD dataset to get the data.)  Any idea how I should fix it?

The GetData returns data fine when I preview it in the DataSet Designer.  I can see the tables in my Server Explorer as well.

do NOT use the ROOT account to connect to a mysql database from your applications.

anyhow, you need to configure the permissions accordingly for (the account).
