That question is wrriten in the FAQ: http://www.squeakdbx.org/FAQ
Yes, it is exactly what Andreas said. Think in OpenDBX like ODBC. You need
the odbc.dll but also you will need then the odbc library of the backend.
Here it is the same. You need opendbx dll but also the mysql client library
You can download essential package from here: http://dev.mysql
You may want to install only the client. Be sure also the that the dlls are
"findable" by windows.
In my case, I installed in C:/MySQL and I put in $PATH the directory
Probably, this is done automatically done by windows.
