Hi Krzysztof,

   if you build ROOT from source on WinXP and have the MySQL libraries available it should be possible to build the libMySQL.lib (you will also get then the TMySQLServer.h in the include directory).

In principle all the client libraries have been ported to WinXP. The only things currently not supported are the rootd and proofd daemons.

Cheers, Fons.
