It seems that it is not possible to install mysqlmanager as a windows service with a --defaults-file option, it is possible with mysqld.exe

How to repeat:
shell> mysqlmanager --install --defaults-file=my.ini
mysqlmanager: unknown variable 'defaults-file=my.ini'

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/ and the instructions on
how to report a bug at http://bugs.mysql.com/how-to-report.php

--defaults-file should be first option for any program, if it is used.

My intention is to install mysqlmanager as a Windows service with a --defaults-file, and all attempt failed.
mysqlmanager.exe --defaults-file=my.ini --install
install the windows service without the the --defaults-file option while 
the following
mysqlmanager.exe --install --defaults-file=my.ini 
fail with error.

On the other hand,
mysqld --install --defaults-file=my.ini
works well, so --defaults-file can be in the 2nd option when installing as a Windows service.

Also is not possible to install mysqlmanager as service with not standard defaults file not by adding --defaults-file=foo first option, neither other way. So I mark this as "Verified".
