Cannot connect to MySQL using VB.NET 1.1

I am using VB.NET 1.1 and cannot connect to a MySQL (v5) database.

I've done the following:

1) Create a DSN for MyODBC.
2) Connect using: Driver=MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver; Server=localhos t; Data
Source=test; UID=test; PWD=pwd; OPTION=3
When I run my app, I get this error: An OLE DB Provider was not specified in
the ConnectionStrin g. An example would be, 'Provider=SQLOL EDB;'.

I tried changing the connection string to Provider=MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver;
Server=localhos t; Data Source=test; UID=test; PWD=pwd; OPTION=3 (Instead of
Driver, I change it to Provider - most of the examples I found on the net
including those from MySQL AB uses Driver).

Now I get this error: The 'MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver' provider is not
registered on the local machine.

Can someone please help?

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/...-op-vb-cp.html has an excellent
example of how to do this:

'MyODBC 3.51 connection string
Dim MyConString As String = "DRIVER={My SQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};" & _
"SERVER=localho st;" & _
"DATABASE=test; " & _
"UID=venu;" & _
"PASSWORD=venu; " & _
"OPTION=3;"

'Connection
Dim MyConnection As New OdbcConnection( MyConString)
MyConnection.Op en()

Note the quotes/braces around the DRIVER section

I just realised I am trying to use OLE DB to connect to MySQL.

Is it possible to connect to MySQL OLE DB? Where can I download MyOLEDB?
