Complete Example a la Hello World

Is there a complete example that one could use for stepwise refinement to illustrate the bridging between Windows-1252 and UTF-8? MySQL is running on a Debian Jessie platform and I am able to emulate the initial examples (including SELECT and INSERT) in Connector/.NET guide using C#.

However, when I use similar code using the RT dll (for Windows IoT Core) for the client to the same MySQL instance, I run into the character set issue that is explained in thorough detail in the docs available through this site. However, I do not know how to apply the guidance! Being a little naïve, I need a monkey-see-monkey-do code snippet.

Here is what doesn't work on the Windows 10 IoT Core platform (but does in a Windows 10 desktop platform):

string connStr = "Server=...;Database=...;Uid=...;Pwd=...;port=3306;SslMode=None;charset=utf8;";
MySqlConnection conn = new MySqlConnection(connStr);
string rtn = "myProc";
MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand(rtn, conn);
cmd.CommandType = MySql.Data.MySqlClient.CommandType.StoredProcedure;
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("Coln", "Valuen");
MySqlDataReader rdr = cmd.ExecuteReader();

An exception is thrown for the ExecuteReader method for the character set incompatibility, "Windows-1252 is not a supported encoding name."

What changes do I need to make (e.g. Encoding.UTF8 and related methods) to ensure proper processing by this simple app?
