MySQL connection - works in 11 but not in 15

Hi

 

I am running a Windows Server 2008 machine and have made an ODBC connection to a remote MySQL database using the MySQL Unicode Driver 5.2. I get a "successful" message when testing in ODBC Administrator and I can also use it to successfully create an External MySQL Data Source in an FM 11 database. But when I try to create a similar data source within a FileMaker 15 database, the DSN does even not show up.

 

What is the magic difference between 11 and 15 for ODBC connection purposes?

 

I would be extremely grateful for any help!

 

Thanks.

Nick
