I think there might a small services problem in windows.
MySQL56 service name is created successfully but then using the 
MySQL notifier to start/stop the service causes an error though
thankfully the error message popup state it is looking for 'mysql56'
all lowercase; reconfigured the server to install service name 'mysql56' 
instead of 'MySQL56' and it worked.  Would this be a windows issue more than 
mysql or mysql issue?

MySQL Notifier 1.1.6
MySQL Installer 1.4

How to repeat:
Install MySQL with most defaults -- especially installation of MySQL Windows Service with name 'MySQL56'.

Use the MySQL Notifier to update server status Stop/Restart/Start
See popup saying couldn't change.

Suggested fix:
Open MySQL Installer and reconfigure the MySQL Windows Service name to something else (strictly lower case).

Change server code and recompile to be case insensitive when looking for MySQL Windows Service currently installed.

Fixed code so that when a new Windows Service for a MySQL Server is added, its name is recognized with its casing as is.
