I'm trying to install MySQL 5.1.5 max nt on WinXP sp2, in my my.ini file I have this rows:

# The default storage engine that will be used when create new tables when

when I try to get mysqld to display it's help from command line it says:

C:\Programmi\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin>mysqld-max-nt --help
Unknown/unsupported table type: InnoDB

commenting it out leads to the expected:

C:\Programmi\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin>mysqld-max-nt --help
mysqld-max-nt  Ver 5.1.5-alpha-nt-max for Win32 on ia32 (MySQL Community Edition

Starts the MySQL database server

Usage: mysqld-max-nt [OPTIONS]

For more help options (several pages), use mysqld --verbose --help

After this it installs correctly and seems to have innodb support enabled

How to repeat:
See above
