Install the meb-3.5.next binary using windows msi installer. 
After installation the directory will have ibbackup and mysqlbackup executable.
The manual points to MEB 3.5 version which does not specify anything about mysqlbackup.exe file.
How will the user understand that mysqlbackup.exe is nothing but innobackup.exe file.
There should be a README doc (and clear statement in manual) that explains the significance of mysqlbackup.exe tool for windows.
Also the reference manual should point to MEB 3.5.2 version and not MEB 3.5 version

How to repeat:
Install the binary for windows from

Suggested fix:
1. README doc should be added 
2. Manual should point to MEB 3.5.2 version.

I noticed that there is no README file in Linux binaries also.
