I have mysqld running on a client's NT machine. Due to some selects with
a high join level I have to set a higer (16-32 MB) tmp_table_size or
otherwise I get an "SQL table ... full" error. Some time ago, I read
that when installing mysqld as a service there is no way to pass
parameters. Is this still true, and what options do I have? Currently,
I've put a .BAT file in the AutoStart folder which starts mysqld with
the necessary options, but this is ugly - there is always a DOS window
open, and I see no way to make it running when no one is logged in.
Using the option which forces temporary tables to be stored on disk is
not what I'd like to do.
Thanks in advance for your advices,
