The binary mysqld.exe is no longer bundled with the Windows Enterprise downloads.

How to repeat:
morgan-tockers-computer:~/Desktop/mysql-enterprise-gpl-5.0.44sp1-win32/bin morgo$ ls | grep mysqld.exe
morgan-tockers-computer:~/Desktop/mysql-enterprise-gpl-5.0.50-win32/bin morgo$ ls | grep mysqld.exe

A file named mysqld.exe was included in MySQL enterprise packages between and including 5.0.42 and 5.0.48 by mistake. Since it wasn't supposed to be there, it was removed in 5.0.50.

Please update the 5.0.50 changes to document the incompatible change (removed the file mysqld.exe since it's previous inclusion was not intentional).

A note has been added to the 5.0.50 changelog: 

The file mysqld.exe was mistakenly included in binary distributions between MySQL 5.0.42 and 5.0.48. You should use mysqld-nt.exe.
