Did you follow the instruction?
If you want to create DSN without opening the database file, uncheck the checkbox 'Connect to host to obtain the names of available databases' in the dialog.
Yes I followed the instructions, and also made a setup without checking the 'Connect to host...'
But it didn't work. I finnaly found a free connector from Mysql.org. This one is also with a grafical interface which makes it easy to setup.
In this connector I get the list of tables without a problem.
