Not sure what version of BE are you using. Incase of BE 2010 or Be 2012, you would need a Remote Agent for Windows to be installed on the Windows 7 machine to backup data from it. Having said this, BE does not support MYSQL as an application, so you may not be able to perform online backups of MYSQL.

Edit: You do need 1 RAWS licence to backup Windows 7 but no need of a Database and Application licence as MYSQL is not supported as a application.
