Shadowood Condos,
As you may have already read, there is a bug in Excel 2007 that prevents any COM add-in to be installed under the local machine registry key. Not sure if that hotfix you mentioned is the one that Microsoft released to fix the problem, but it is installed if you have all Windows + Office updates in your computer.

If you have any previous MySQL for Excel versions installed, then uninstall it first, try installing with the stand-alone MSI and make sure VSTO 4 runtime is installed.

If for any reason you still can't enable the add-in and you still suspect it is because the Microsoft hotfix is not installed, then you will have to add a registry key manually under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins similar to the one you already have after installing MySQL for Excel in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (same path).
