After install of MySQL Administrator on Windows ME, the NETAPI32.DLL throws an error that NetApiBufferFree is missing. A secondary error message then gets displayed about a device on the system not working properly.

Wonderful error message, that one....

How to repeat:
Start MySQL Administrator.

Suggested fix:
Provide internal NetApiBufferFree implementation?

How important is WinME support for you? We are thinking about dropping support for those platforms since it means a great deal of dev/testing time. Only if a lot of customers request it, we will keep it.

Unfortunately for me, it's the only OS that runs reliably on my laptop where this is installed. I would not be able to use it on my laptop unless I can fix the export with a different DLL.

DLL Hell. I agree with you, Michael, that WinME is hard to justify on anyone's development radar.
