Is this happening on more than one workstation? Are you using 64bit drivers?
This does not seem to be a filemaker issue, rather a driver issue or an issue with your MySQL installation.
These might help:
Yes it is happening everywhere I've connected from both when using FM Pro and via WebDirect.
I did use the 64bit drivers.
Yes I think you're right. I posted here thinking there might be others in a similar boat and paddling with the same kind of oars. I check the links, thank you.
