The account is not read yet. Click databases...; selcect mysql ; click db table; click insert.

Assign the username that you just created for the raiden DB. Since the host is localhost , we will give it all priviledges here. Click Go to finish. Now, same as above, reload your MySQL.

Now, try to change the username password you set in ODBC driver (the u/p used to be root and empty.). Please type in the username and password you just created and click test.
