MySQL for Excel - caching_sha2_password not supported

Good day,

I installed MySQL and MySQL fro Excel, but when I try to open a connection, I get the message that the connection attempt failed. Error message: Authentication method 'caching_sha2_password' not supported by any of the available plugins.

I tried doing as was suggested here:
https://mysqlserverteam.com/upgrading-to-mysql-8-0-default-authentication-plugin-considerations/

and added

[mysqld]
default-authentication-plugin=mysql_native_password

to the my.ini config file.

It didn't work.

Not sure what else I can try.
