You can't do this. But you can install a MySQL ODBC driver in Windows.

and i have to connect it to crystal report,

You want access MySQL with "Crystal Report"? So the question is:
How access this software such a database. Have it it's own driver, or did it use ODBC?

I don't know anything about this software...

But you can access MySQL via ODBC, if you install this driver.
