Why a waste of 2 hours? I am going to assume that since it is a .zip file you downloaded, that your platform is Windows.

Solution:
1)Install the program.

2)Open your c:\mysql directory, then open the \bin directory and you will see a file called winmysqladmin. -- click it. It will start up a GUI admin screen. Enter a username / password for it. It WILL automatically create the file for you. -- DONE

As for the open-source developers and community... well, I disagree with you 100%
