HELP!!!  "Database Connection Error" with an app that using MYSQL

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi, I have a program that uses MYSQL for its database.  If I execute the program locally on the server it seems to come up just fine.  However, if I try to execute it remotely using a shortcut with a mapped drive to the program on the server from a desktop (Windows XP Pro or Windows 7), it gives me error messages.

First error message: Database Connection Error [SQL Error: Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)]

Second error message: The exception unknow software exception (0x0eedfade) occurred in the application at location 0x7c812afb.

Third error message: The instruction at "0x01d06d30" referenced memory at "0x00000000".  The memory could not be "read".

Fourth error message: The exception unknown software exception (0x0eedfade) occurred in the application at location 0x7c812afb.

Fifith & final error message: The instruction at "0x01768e20" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not "read".

I tried turning off the firewall and even uninstalling the antivirus/antispyware software and it still does not work remotely.

Only other thing I can think of is that the software needs a patch or something.

I did perform a few Microsoft Updates on the Server 2008 Standard 32-bit OS.  But not sure how that will effect the app.

Everything else seems to be working just fine.

Any ideas or suggestions of what else I should look at?

Thanks in advance.
