The registry key/values are created by your installshield:

   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\yourapp.EXE
        (Default)  C:\mysql\yourapp.Exe
        Path       C:\mysql

This is incorrect.  I believe the correct value should be something like:

   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\mysql.EXE
        (Default)  C:\mysql\bin\mysqld-nt.exe
        Path       C:\mysql

How to repeat:
