WinMySQLadmin -The Solution of LIBMYSQL.dll access violation

The Access Violation popups because the default passwords of MySQL in XAMPP and in WinMySQLadmin are different.

To stop the Access violation error message, you should go to the "my.ini Setup" tab, and change the password in the lines:





If you was changed login/password for MySQL aready, you should write your login/password instead of "root" / ""

Additionally, check "mysqld" instead of "mysqld-shareware" at the left.

Don't forget to click the "Save Modification" button.

There are many other posts in the forum that can lay claim to finding this dubious solution to a problem that can be avoided by not using WinMySQLAdmin in the first place or by deleting the 3 WinMySQLAdmin files in the xampp\mysql\bin folder.

WinMySQLAdmin should not be used at all, use phpMyAdmin or an alternative MySQL Administrator from the MySQL web site which is part of MySQL GUI Tools.


So as you can see there are quite a few posts found in a forum search here for winmysqladmin going back over 12 months that also have this password method.

To solve this problem is really easy. First, close all the error pop up window. An then you have to go to the traffic light picture-->show me-->stop extend server status. But you must do it quickly before the pop up message showing up again. And after that close the WinMySQLAdmin. Next time if you wanna use WinMySQLAdmin again, RUN IT AS ADMINISTRATOR. And the same problem will not happen again. Hope it's helpful.
