Hi,

i tried to install MySQL in silent mode but i can not start service. I get help from other comments but still does not working.

msiexec /i "MySQL_Setup.msi" /quiet INSTALLDIR="c:\MySQL" -- working and installing, its not creating DATA directory, i m creating manualy.

c:\MySQL\bin\mysqld --install MySQL --defaults-file="c:\my.ini"

my.ini include;
[mysqld]
basedir=C:/mysql
datadir=C:/mysql/data


until here works fine, no error. but when i try to start service;

>net start mysql
MySQL service starting...
MySQL server can not start...

1067 system error


--------------

when i check .err file it says;
c:\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe: Table 'mysql.plugin' doesn't exist
091016 17:27:24 [ERROR] Can't open the mysql.plugin table. Please run mysql_upgrade to create it.
