You need to download the MySQL connector from here:

Download the version that says "Windows Binaries, no installer (ZIP)",
then you can extract the MySQL dlls and if you are creating an ASP.NET
project, place them in your <webapp>/bin/ directory.  Otherwise just put
them in the same directory as your .exe.
