Running MySQL Server 4.1 as a service on Windows XP Home edition. Running Apache 2 as a web server. Conecting localy as localhost. Using as a development setup.

Getting message

Client does not support authentication protocol requested
by server; consider upgrading MySQL client

when using clients such as MYSQL-Front, DBdesigner 4 or MYSQL Control Center.Tried starting server using --old-passwords parameter as explained in http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Password_hashing.html.

The --old-passwords parameter does not seem to work. I still get the same problem. I tried putting old_passwords in the my.ini as well as starting the service with --old-passwords. I am using mysqld-nt.exe as a service. 

How to repeat:
See above
