    Unanswered: looking for a suggestion

    Hi Forum,

    I am looking for a suggestion.

    My installation of MySQL has hung on this final page:

    What would you do?

    Why is installing MySQL on Windows Vista such a bear? For someone who is not
    a professional database administrator, it seems like I am jumping through hoops.

    This page
    MySQL :: Re: How to install MySQL on Vista
    pointed to this page
    SQL Server Central
    which suggests this page
    MySQL on Windows: Configuration & Install - Port 25: The Open Source Community at Microsoft
    which points to this beautiful pdf file
    http://port25.technet.com/videos/res...QL_Windows.pdf
    Ah, now I am getting somewhere.

    It suggested I turn off the User Account Control (UAC). Which I did.

    But after following these steps
    There was an error at the end of the installation that said that the server failed to start.

    Where do I go to find answers?

    Revo Uninstaller did the trick.
    I am not trying to run an ad for them.
