Shared memory connections do not work when MySQl is ran as a service on Vista.

How to repeat:
1. Install MySQL as a service on Vista RTM.  
2. Modify my.ini to include shared-memory as an option
2. Start service
3. Attempt to connect to the server using --protocol=memory

Thank you for the report.

But Windows Vista is not supported until it's official release.

Vista has been officially released and we are under a time crunch to get MySQL compatible with Vista so moving this bug report back to open.

There is similar bug #24841.

Reporter provided patch.

This bug concerns any version of windows nt, if a connection is made from within a remote-session (terminal services or remote desktop).

Refering to bug-report #24731, the problem is caused by the client and not the server.

I suggest to update the OS-tag. This bug-report is hard to find otherwise.

The issue was that when mysqld is run as a service then the shared memory objects that are created need to be in the global namespace since the server and client are running under different logins.

Noted in 5.0.44, 5.1.20 changelogs.

When mysqld was run as a Windows service, shared memory objects were
not created in the global namespace and could not be used by clients
to connect.
