Cannot Connect mySQL to UiPath - Error : Bad Handshake


I want to connect to mysql to uipath without actually installing the mysql server on my laptop. I installed mysql odbc connector 8.0.23 and added a system dsn in data source administrator. Upon entering the credentials and testing the connection, I am getting an error “Bad Handshake”.


Can someone help me figure out what was wrong? MySQL server version is 5.1.69

Hi @Kristine_Ann_Garlan ,
