Error: This connector requires one or more additional components to be installed MYSQL

Hi all! 


I am having trouble trying to connect to a MySQL database using Power BI, and Power Query. I've used the forms and helpful links to make sure I have downloaded the correct connectors, and I still receive the same error. Please help!

Hi, @ebredy 


this is a common issue. which version od SQL connector are you using? you may need to use v8.0.26 or higher. Also make sure you are using DB cred not windows credentials. Some people makes this mistake sometimes. 


See the thread to resolve your problem.
