After upgrading to MySQL 4.1.13 beta, the MySQL Command line client option is grayed out in the menu.

How to repeat:
start administrator, connect to localhost.

Suggested fix:

Probably you have installed the new mysql server into a different location.
At the moment only three default locations are searched for the mysql command line client. I will add a dialog and allow the user to enter the path manually.

location is exactly the same as previous install:

[FSCZ0KW691WKYSX] D:\Profiles\MCHWE175>"C:\Program Files\mysql\bin\mysql" -v
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 229 to server version: 4.1.3b-beta-nt-log
