Problem with MySQL and Crystal Reports

I have a problem with Crystal Reports 8 and MySQL (MyODBC-3.51). The connection fails and closes the program. In the Control Panel - Administrator Tools, the DNS connection is OK, but in Crystal Reports I don't connect the DB with driver MySQL.

First be aware that there is an issue with the very latest version of MyODBC (3.51.10-2), which can cause this

problem. Information can be found here.

Once you are connected, you can find information on improving compatibility between MySQL and Crystal Reports here.
