Adding a Path Element under RoR config for libmysql.dll

I am experiencing a problem that was solved some months ago with the Answer: Add an additional path element under Ruby on Rails config that points to the location of libmysql.dll .

Where do I go to add this path element?  I know what the path is.  I just don't know how to add it.  My platform is Windows XP.

I think you are talking about http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/message/5240623#5240623

We dropped "additional path" configuration from RubyMine. Just patch your 'Path' environment variable in Windows XP System settings. And then restart RubyMine.

Roman,

   Thank you.  I went to the XP Control Panel, then to Administrative Tools, then to Advanced, then to Environment Variables.  To the Path variable I added...  c:xampp\mysql\bin\libmysql.dll    This is where this driver is located.  I then restarted my machine, started RM and performed a Rake of db:migrate.  I got the same error message.

   Please advise.   If you feel that I am going to need phone support to get beyond this, please recommend a resource.

Regards

Roman,

   Wondering if you will be able to reply to my followup on your answer.  If not, is there someone you can recommend for phone support?

Hello Chuck,

Instead of file

c:\xampp\mysql\bin\libmysql.dll


try to add its parent folder

c:\xampp\mysql\bin


After you've changed Path environment variable please restart RubyMine
