I purchased MySQL after using the shareware version on NT, Linux, and
solaris. I had no real problems once I learned to read the manual.
Now I cannot get the latest Win version to start as a service on NT. I had
the 3.19 version running so I stopped the service, ran mysqld --remove,
deleted the files and rebooted. Then I installed the latest version, 3.22_20.
I tried mysqld-nt --install the rebooted. No mysql. So I went to the
control panel, services and tried to start mysql. I received the following:
Error 1067 the process terminated unexpectedly.
So I went to the command line and tried mysqld --standalone and it starts
The readme states that if the service does not start, to check the path.
The path is fine. So I removed the service, mysqld-nt --remove, and
rebooted. I then edited the registry and removed all references to mysql.
Then I tried C:\mysql\bin\mysql-nt --install. The service still won't start.
What else should I try?
