Well, ordinarily the MySQL service is started by Windows along with all the rest: After
installing MySQL under Windows one runs "MySQL Instance Configuration Wizard"--the only
MySQL program on my system that runs from "Start". (If you cannot do this on the machine
where "mysqld.exe" is to run I do not know what to say.)
If the service, with program "mysqld.exe", quits, to start it one enters
"start mysqld -b..." from the command line, with the directory where "my.ini" is kept
entered for "...". Of course, if "mysqld.exe" started and quit, as Reindl Harald suggested
study the logs and find out why. It is not started through the client, "mysql.exe".
