Can't shutdown mysqld propperly under Windows 98 when using WinMySQLAdmin.exe.
and will show the following error message:
  Error on Shutdown:
  This version of MySQL doesn't yet support 'this shutdown level'
and also show the "Access violation".

How to repeat:
Run the WinMySQLAdmin.exe at \mysql\bin\

Click the Icon of WinMySQLAdmin.exe at taskbar. 
Select the "Win 9x".
Click "Shut down the server"

Thank you for the bug report.

The problem is that winmysqladmin is an old application, built against old API.
So, you have to keep a copy of the old libmysql.dll for winmysqladmin to work.
Just put them into one directory (but don't put new MySQL clients into it, as they need new libmysql.dll).

Please, reopen this bugreport if the above won't help.

By the way, WinMySQLAdmin will soon be deprecated. We have developed a more feature-rich replacement for it, MySQL Administrator:
which has this more, compared to WinMySQLAdmin:
*) Setup Server Instances,
*) Edit config file with GUI interface
*) User Administration
*) Server Connection Monitoring
*) Health Status
*) Log file browsing/filtering
*) Backup/Restore functionality
*) Catalog browsing, Table creation with TableEditor
*) Table Maintenance (check/fix)
*) interaction with MySQL Query Browser to query the database
and it includes a small program, "MySQL System Tray Monitor" which
places itself beside the clock in the Windows statusbar and displays
the server status and the machine's workload.
MySQL Administrator runs on 32-bit Windows NT based operating systems, including Windows NT, 2000, XP, and 2003; so unfortunately, not on Windows 98.
In your case, the only fix is what Sergei suggested: using the old DLL.
