Older versions of the MySQL drivers are available from the MySQL archives at:
BTW, if you're using a 64-bit version of Windows, be sure to use the 32-bit version of the ODBC Data Source Administrator.
I marked Gregs answer as helpful because the actual issue was that the permissions on the MySql side were actually not letting the DSN work. Its a production website and is pretty well locked down on who and where someone can do ODBC to it, as it should be. The mySql permissions are somewhat interesting to validate, especially when between machines.
Very helpful, but already discovered by mr Google is that you MUST use the 32 bit ODBC Admin, which you must 'go find' since the one in the start menu is the 64 bit Admin.
Still think that FMI could validate the 3.51 GA version instead of .14, or possibly write a tech note about the differences between the two.
Hopefully the next version of ESS will not stay with the 32 bit 3.51 connector.
