Details: "MySQL: We were unable to find a database provider with invariant name 'MySql.Data.MySqlClient'.
<br>This error could've been the result of provider-specific client software being required, but missing on this computer. To download client software for this provider, visit the following site and choose the 32-bit (x86) version of, at minimum, 'MySQL Connector/Net': https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=278885"

Re: Power BI Desktop - Unable to Connect to my local MySQL dbase

I have the same issue but the link doesn't seem to work anymore.

Do you have any other way to get it?

 

Thanks!

Re: Power BI Desktop - Unable to Connect

Bom dia.. Estou com o mesmo problema, erro:

MySQL: Não conseguimos localizar um provedor de banco de dados com o nome invariável 'MySql.Data.MySqlClient'. Esse erro pode ter sido resultado da ausência de um software cliente específico do provedor necessário nesse computador. Para baixar o software cliente para esse provedor, visite o seguinte site e selecione a versão de 64 bits (x64), como mínimo, 'MySQL Connector/Net': https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=278885

Já segui os passos da solução, porém não deu certo.

Re: Power BI Desktop - Unable to Connect

Just restart your on-premises data gateway (personal mode). It should work. It did for me.
