Hi All, I press get data and select MySQL datatabase.
I get the following message:
"we encountered an error while trying to connect. the connector cannot be used because you are missing one or more required components.".
The Learn More link took me to the MySQL site to download
I downloaded that and nothing happened. I restarted my machine as well, no dice.
Windows 10, 32 bit office, 32 bit power BI.
Solved! Go to Solution.
same problem. mysql doesn't offer 64bit .net connector and 32bit doesn't work with powerbi
getting: "this connector requires one or more additional components to be installed"
