I'm not sure if I have anything that I can add that has not been suggested but I have seen this error before and it is the worst one you can get in DW in my opinion because it does not explain anything about what the problem is.

If you have not tried this already you should attempt to create your connection and not use localhost but instead use your local ip, it is usually 127.0.0.1. I did not see in the post that this was tried so I thought I would suggest it.
