Dreamweaver MX 2004 - "An Unidentifed Error has occorred."

I HAVE THIS POSTED UNDER NEWBIE. I DECIDED TO MOVE IT HERE TO GET MORE EXPOSURE BUT I COULDN'T CLOSE THE OLD ONE SO SORRY FOR THE DUPLICATION.

Hi folks. I have scoured the internet for a fix to this problem. Most of the posts I read are unanswered or the solution does not work. I am hoping a guru reads mine and has the magic answer - I am ready to chuck the project altogether if I can't find a solution. Although I am not a newbie to simple page design, I have never really tackled data access (dynamic content) before, like I am about to. I am ready and willing to learn but this obstacle may hinder my interest if it is going to be this big a pain in the keester.

Let's start with my system config:
Windows XP Pro w/ SP3
Dreamweaver MX 2004
IIS 5.1 - configured with FTP support
PHP 5.2.11
MySQL 5.0 - For now I am using the Test DB that comes with MySQL. Using "root" account.

I have verified that all is running properly to the best of my knowledge. Certainly Dreamweaver up until this issue has worked for years. I have not used DW for data access before on this machine but have successfully on others.

IIS > Loads web content from http://localhost just fine. Including PHP test page. And IIS help stuff that comes pre-installed.

MySQL > I can build DB's and Schemas just fine. I can even import data from external sources so I have to assume it's running fine.

Dreamweaver > The site I am building has the following config:

Local Info
Site Name: medimj
Local Root: C:\medimj *set to refresh
Images: C:\medimj\images
HTTP: blank

Remote Info
Access: Local/Network
Remote Folder: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\medimj\ *set to refresh auto

Testing Server
Server Model: PHP MySQL
This site contains: Dreamweaver MX Pages Only (default)
Access: Local/Network
Testing Server Folder: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\medimj\ *set to refresh auto
URL Prefix: http://localhost/medimj
<<<Everything else I believe is irrelevant to the topic and left to defaults>>>

SO HERE IS WHAT IS HAPPENING:
When I go to make a data connection (Step 4 under the Database tab of Applications section in DW), I click the "+" button and select "MySQL Connection". The dialogue window appears and I input:

Connection Name: medimj
MySql Server: localhost
User Name: root
Password: <password>

I click "Select" button and get an error window that says "An Unidentified error has occurred." and I am taken back to the MySQL Connection dialogue box. I have tried adding http:, slashes, \medimj, IP address, and pipe name to the Server name to make the connection and none of it works.

Here is a copy of the MySQL section of results from a test.php page I created:

mysql.allow_persistent On On
mysql.connect_timeout 60 60
mysql.default_host localhost localhost
mysql.default_password no value no value
mysql.default_port 3306 3306
mysql.default_socket no value no value
mysql.default_user no value no value
mysql.max_links Unlimited Unlimited
mysql.max_persistent Unlimited Unlimited
mysql.trace_mode Off Off

I've been at this for 3 days and uninstalled and reinstalled everything to no avail. I hope I have given enough information for someone to make a suggestion that will help. I thank anyone for their time in advance.
