It was due to how you set up your connection string. The database needs to be specified in all lower-case,may 
be to match the name of the database as stored in MySQL. you didn't expect that to occur, since MySQL is otherwise case-insensitive on Windows.

It's almost identical to how you would call a SQL Server Stored Procedure:
using(MySqlConnection conn = new MySqlConnection(connString))
  MySqlCommand command = new MySqlCommand("spSomeProcedure;", conn);
  command.CommandType = System.Data.CommandType.StoredProcedure;
  // Add your parameters here if you need them
  command.Parameters.Add(new MySqlParameter("someParam", someParamValue));
  int result = (int)command.ExecuteScalar();

The error simply says it cant find the specified stored procedure in the database. the reasons may be many. Like you dont have sp created on database or connection string is wrong,etc.
As a start can you try executing the Stored procedure directly in Query Analyser by passing parameter values?
