Simple test, do a 'ping localhost'. If this works TCP/IP should be o.k.

I don't think it is a port number problem. There should be another error message if the
port is already in use.
But did you move 'my.cnf' to 'C:\' directory?

It starts listening on the given port for clients to connect.
As far as I know there should only TCP/IP be set up correctly.
I didn't have any problems with 'mysqld --standalone'. I use it for testing on my local
machine once in a while.
Perhaps it's a OS version problem. I use it under NT 4.0 with SP4 installed.
What OS do you use?
