We cannot reproduce the problem.
Please make sure your configuration of MySql Embedded Server is correct. Refer to our documentation ( , section "Using MyDirect .NET", part "Using Embedded Server"). Read carefully "Limitations".
We recommend:
1) to create a separate folder for Embedded Server (e.g. c:/servers/embedded/), it must contain the share and data folders - just copy it from server installation folder;
2) to place the libmysqld.dll file to the Windows\System32 folder;
3) to make right configuration in the my.ini file or in the connection string (there is an example in our documentation);
4) to use only one copy of Embedded Server, and before using it make sure that MySql Server doesn't have access to the data of Embedded Server. Only one application may work with the Embedded Server instance at the one moment of time.

If you find any unclear moments in our documentation, please feel free to contact us.
