Description:
I try to install with the 3 kinds of instalations.
I delete the entries of mysql inside regedit allways i start a new installation.
I set the path with this
set Path=c:\windows\system;c:\mysql\bin;c:\windows;c:\windows\command
and the file kernel32.dll is on c:\windows\system directory.

and when i try this command on DOS 

c:\> mysqld --standalone

always get this erro window popup
O arquivo Mysqld.exe
está vinculado ao KERNEL32.DLL de exportação que não foi
encontrado:SetFilePointerEX.

translating

The file Mysqld.exe
is linked with KERNEL32.DLL OF EXPORT 
NOT FOUND :SetFilePointerEX

Could somebody help please

According to http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/windows-installation.html :

"Only 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows 2000 and later are supported; however, 64-bit Windows Vista is not yet supported. Windows 95/98/ME and versions of Windows older than these are no longer supported."

On http://www.mysql.com/support/supportedplatforms/enterprise.html Windows 98 is not among the platforms listed.
