Thanks all -

The solution was to change the password for root, kill the installer
using task manager and start the server. I used the Workbench to manage
the database instance. It all seems to be working fine now.

Thanks
Tammie

You mention the Windows installer has Hung. I have seen this
before...try killing the process with task manager and then log into
your server via the client.

  Tammie,

You might just try resetting the root password

Hope this helps,

the Windows interface to uninstall the previous version. It appeared to
be gone but when I installed the new version, it asked me what the
previous root password was and then give new one. I left previous blank
and gave it the new password. Now it has been sitting at the screen in
the configuration wizard for Apply security settings for about 20
minutes. How should I recover from this?
