C:\tools\mysql\bin>mysqld-max-nt --basedir=c:\tools\mysql

030531 12:07:33  Can't find messagefile 'c:     ools\mysql\share\english\errmsg.sys'
030531 12:07:33  Aborting

c:\tools\mysql - '\t' takes as escape seq. (tab.)

How to repeat:
run mysqld in directory started with letter 't' etc. c:\tools\mysql\bin\mysqld

Sorry I wasn't able to repeat:

C:\tools\mysql\bin>mysqld-max --standalone --console --basedir=c:\tools\mysql
030531 10:07:47  InnoDB: Started
mysqld-max: ready for connections.
Version: '4.0.13-max'  socket: ''  port: 3306

However if the issue persist in your OS, use instead paths like the below:

mysqld-max --basedir=c:/tools/mysql
