I don't think this makes sense either, but you will see what I mean:

FOR MY ADMIN ACCOUNT
C:\>netstat -a -p tcp

Active Connections

  Proto  Local Address          Foreign Address        State
  TCP    dynamic:http           dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:epmap          dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:microsoft-ds   dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:1025           dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:1027           dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:1031           dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:3306           dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:1031           dynamic:3306           ESTABLISHED
  TCP    dynamic:3306           dynamic:1031           ESTABLISHED
  TCP    dynamic:netbios-ssn    dynamic:0              LISTENING


FOR THE REGULAR USER ACCOUNT
C:\>netstat -a -p tcp

Active Connections

  Proto  Local Address          Foreign Address        State
  TCP    dynamic:http           dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:epmap          dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:microsoft-ds   dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:1025           dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:1027           dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:3306           dynamic:0              LISTENING
  TCP    dynamic:netbios-ssn    dynamic:0              LISTENING

I was under the impression that once something is installed as a
service, it is available to the system for all users.  This is not the
case here.  In fact, once I log off admin and onto the other accounts
the winmysqladmin manager (which I put in startup for all users) asks if
I want to install the service!!!  When I click "OK" it says "install
failed" and I actually have to shut down the tool in order to log off
(or else the system hangs).  My web site can connect to the server using
PHP scripts to grab data with no problems when the admin account is
running, but as soon as I log off and on to another account the dynamic
part of the site dies.

Again, when I was on my admin account I installed the MySQL service from
the command prompt using:

					mysqld-nt --install

and the result was "service has been installed" (paraphrasing).  I have
uninstalled MySQL completely and reinstalled only to run into the same
problem. I'm using the 3.23.49 binary package.

Kirk,


I am somewhat confused by your question.

I must misunderstand what it is that you are trying to ask, because what
it 
appears that you are asking makes no sense.  Once MySQL was installed as
a 
service, why does it matter which account starts it?  Are you not the
admin 
on the box?  Are you trying to start multiple instances of the MySQL
service?

Logging off of the admin account will not stop a service on a Windows
2000 
box.  Even though you "log off the admin account", MySQL should still be

running.

Or, when you say "started" do you mean "connect to the running server"?

What is the output of the following command on the server running MySQL?
netstat -a -p tcp


Respectfully,
Charles Q.
