Default MySQL Installation on Windows XP

I downloaded "mysql-4.0.21-win.zip" from mysql.com and followed all the instructions in Appendix I. I was able to install the software from the DOS command prompt but when tried to start MySQL with the following command:

"c:\>NET START MySQL" (page 21), I get an the following error:

"System error 193 has occurred.
*** is not a valid Win32 application."

Does anyone have an idea of what might be the problem? Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Have you searched the MySQL Documentation at all? Or Google, for your error?

There are only two stupid questions: the one you don't ask, and the one you ask more than once ;)

Well, not sure what happened but after fruitless searches of the MySQL help/docs and google over the last few days, I did not find anything that worked.

For the benefit of those running into the same problem, I have un-installed (using the control panel), cleaned up the c:\mysql folder and re-installed multiple times (more than 10). Eventually, I have been able to run the "NET START MySQL" command successfully.

Hello,

I searched Google for the same version that the book uses, so I don't get any other errors outside of the book, may be an option, and the version I got had the required files!

Hope this helps!

Will
