I have a desktop application written in vb.net coded in Visual Studio 2010. I am migrating it over to Visual Studio 2013 but I am having issues with the MySQL .Net connector in the VS2013. Opening a new project in VS2013 I create a new dataset and when I connect to the hosted MySQL I get the error "Authentication with old password no longer supported, use 4.1 style passwords." The MySQL server hosted is version 5.0.9. The current MySQL .Net connector in VS2013 is 6.5.7. My old VS2010 connector is 6.3.6 and works. I have tried the SQL statements "SET PASSWORD for <username> = PASSWORD('new password')" which I found on many Google searches and that has not worked.
