Jerry is correct you are better off using the pre-packaged installer from the MySQL distro
for the most part you are downloading (binaries) from some site
creating a MYSQL_HOME environment variable to point to home folder for MySQL
unzipping/uncompressing the distro to the MYSQL_HOME folder
make links to %MYSQL_HOME%\bin\mysqld (mysql daemon) and
%MYSQL_HOME%\bin\mysql (command line interface) and copy them to %ALLUSERSPROFILE%
(would be helpful to work in a editor for my.cnf)
