Description:
Dear Sir/Madam,

I have just installed MySQL 5.0 in WinXP with IIS 5.1 using the Windows x86 binary file (40,656KB), in my D:\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0 directory, together with D:\MySQL\MySQL Administrator 1.0; D:\MySQL\MySQL Query Browser 1.1 and MyODBC 3.51.11 (with anonymous login just to see if the release had really improved MySQL).  Please note that, as an individual developer I have important security, space and fragmentation reasons to AVOID installing the MySQL server (and others) in my C drive. Anyway, I found out that:

- After install, the Administrator could NOT login in the MySQL account, using the registered username and login, since it "Could not resolve hostname D:/MySQL/MySQL Server 5.0/bin". 
- After install, the Query Browser could NOT login in the MySQL account, using the registered username and login, since it "Could not resolve hostname D:/MySQL/MySQL Server 5.0/bin". 

In addition the following DOS command-line has the following response:
- Typing a "mysql" command in a DOS windows started the service correctly.
- Typing a "mysql \h" command in a DOS windows showed help correctly, and allowed to LOG IN the system as current user "ODBC@localhost" (This should NOT work like this).
- Typing a "mysql \s" command in a DOS windows showed status correctly.
-> Typing a "mysql --console" command did NOTHING !
-> Typing a "mysqladmin -u root shutdown" did NOTHING !
- Typing a "mysql \q" command exited correctly.
- Typing a "mysqlshow" command worked correctly.
- Typing a "mysqlshow mysql" command worked correctly.
- Typing a "mysql -e "SELECT Host,Db,User FROM db" mysql" command worked correctly.

Sincerely,

Luiz Cruz

How to repeat:
Just install it using the options: Detailed, Developer Machine, Multifunctional Database, Decision Support (DSS)/OLAP, enable TCP - Port 3306, Standard Character Set, set a root password for the server, create an anonymous user account for the first installation trial (not used in the final install), set the INI file in C:\Windows directory, install MySQL in D:\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0. Next, install the other packages in the directories D:\MySQL\MySQL Administrator 1.0, D:\MySQL\MySQL Query Browser 1.1, and the ODBC 3.51.11 driver.

Now just test.

The "the Administrator could NOT login"refers to MySQL Administrator 1.0.20.

Could you please provide us with the complete MySQL service image path
which you can get from the service's properties.

Thanks in advance.
