Description:
my mysql is installed in 'd:\pro\mysql' directory.
when I use character-set of latin1 or binary,etc?Cthe mysql database service runs well.These are the coperations I executed:
execute'D:\pro\mysql\bin>mysqld --default-character-set=latin1',then the service runs well:

But when I tried character-set of 'big5','gbk' or 'gb2312',the database service went wrong.These are the coperations I executed:
execute 'D:\pro\mysql\bin>mysqld --default-character-set=gbk' in the command line?Cit returned the following error messages:

mysqld: File 'D:\pro\mysql\share\charsets\gbk.xml' not found (Errcode: 2)
mysqld: Character set 'gbk' is not a compiled character set and is not specified in the 'D:\pro\mysql\share\charsets\Index.xml' file

The problem doesn't exist in lower versions of mysql. And I asked many people about it,they said it is a bug!
