It took my almost 3 days to figured it out after google a lot, and I decided to put the tutorial here so it can save your alot time to google yourself. Good luck!

1) Download mysql++-3.0.9.tar.gz (2.6 MB, 2009.02.04) (
2) Use 7-zip to extract twice on the tar.gz
3) Rename folder to “mySQL++” and move this folder to C:\ or D:\
4) Open mySQL++ folder and double click install.hta
5) Check Segregate libraries by platform, then click Install Now.
6) Download mysql-5.0.77 ZIP/Setup.EXE (, must be WINx86 not WINx64, because I tried x64 on my x64 laptop and i always get error while i compile the simple that included in mySQL++ folder), and choose install complete not typical.
7) Download bakefile_0.2.5.exe from ( , and install it.
a. Then open CMD, go to C:\mySQL++\
b. Then type rebake and enter.
8) Open Visual Studio 2008, open mysql++.sln in vc2008 folder (C:\mysql++\vc2008\mysql++.sln) , then go tool -> Options -> Projects and Solutions -> VC++ Directories
a. Executable files, add C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin
b. Include files, add C:\mySQL++\include and D:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\include
c. Library files, add C:\mySQL++\lib
9) Right click on Solution project and select Property -> Linker -> Input, and then add “mysqlpp_d.lib” in Additional Dependencies.

10) Then go to CMD C:\mysql++\, enter exrun resetdb -u root -p yourpassword and click Enter

11) Then you can rebuild the mysql++.sln and go to CMD (C:\mysql++\vc2008\debug\simple1 -u root -p yourpassword) to see if it works.

Have FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
