This is good for 32bits of Python, but not for 64bits of Python! If you installed 64bits of Python (not 64/32bits of OS), you may want to download the 64bits of MySQLdb here: www_codegood_com/archives/129 I wasted over 1 hour to solve this UnicodeDecodeError (64bits Python + 32bits MySQLdb), and hope to save your time.
no Python 2.6 support for Windows has stopped my project in it's tracks. I need 2.6 for HTTP time-outs and MySQL is crucial. Talk about a rock and a hard place! April 21st 2010 and still no solution... Jan 24th 2011 - the heading says 2.6 is supported now so I will try it an report back
