When I add or change a setting of a user acount he don't store is. When you push the button alpply changes.  Always I get the message 'Error While storing the user information.  The user might have been delted.  Plaese refreche the user list.

Passwords are never saved on the right way.

How to repeat:
Add a new user account.

Go to an other acount.
Go bak to that the new account, and change the privileges.
Try to store the info.

Me too. I get the same error message when adding a user using version 1.1.0.
It's a real pain. I have tried installing and uninstalling and the only user account that works is root. Any help is apprciated.

Me Too. Not sure whether it's a bug on a setting.

If it helps any, I have a screenshot of the error that I get. This error occures after I press the "apply changes" button.

I'm having the same problem. I'm running on Windows 2000 Server. The only way that the password or user information is changed is after you restart MySQL. No other information can be changed. This is a real problem, hopefully someone will get to it.

I use MySQL Administrator version 1.1.0 on OS Windows 2000 Server w/IIS. I receive the same error.  It will create the user and the host to connect from, but it will not grant/update a user's permissions.

I just installed and have hit the same wall.  
How is anyone getting users added with privileges?

Exactly the same issue here, too - won't save any user changes.

I just installed MySQL 4.1.13. Running on Win XP Pro SP2, using with Movable Type 3.17.

Don't need any simpler test cases.... I just CAN'T add a user and get the same info as posted above.  Any people out there that passed the "tough" exams able to help?
Love to test this database out a little.  Need to add users first.....

It appears that I am having the same issue as everyone else.  I have a new Windows Server 2003 Web Edition (sp1), IIS6, ActivePerl, PHP 5.0.4, MySQL 4.1.13 and MySQL Administrator 1.1.0 rc.

I can add a user and password from the Administrator, and when I click Apply changes I get the Error while storing the user information.  When I refresh the list however the user is there.

When I assign or reassign any Schema Privileges from the MySQL Administrator, I get the Error while storing....  If I reassign privileges, all of the previously assigned privileges disappear and then I get the Error while....

The user settings that are set by the mysql monitor work just fine. They even display fine in the MySQL Administrator until you attempt to change them.

As an extremely minor aside, you have a spelling error, Schema Priviledges assigned to the User, (no d in privilege).

Hi, I upgraded to the latest beta test version and all my problems went away.

where to find the latest beta ?
[1 Aug 2005 0:36] David Baudais
Use the MySql database server at http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.0.html.
This Beta Version is compatiable with the MySql Administrator software. Once I installed the new database server all my problems went away. I looks like this problem was fixed in this version of the database server.
