    dont think mysql need its env. variables to be set before i can run, it has default settings that meet most needs. just try to start the server, install a mysql server management software such as mysql-front, EMS... and start designing your tables.

    hope this helps

    correct me if I'm wrong, but you'll need the ODBC drivers (download from the mySQL site) to get the control center and mySQL to talk to each other. this is mySQL version of ADO which allows all connectivity.

    could you be able to start mysql properly? can you go to command promt, cd to mysql\bin directory and type:

    mysqladmin version

    if there is something like

    Server version 3.23.49-nt
    Protocol version 10
    .....

    then you have successfully started the server. next step is to connect by mysql control center on localhost (the computer that runs mysql server) with user name 'root', no password by default.

    if you cant get mysql reply, it means you havent started the server, pls goto mysql website, check how to start mysql server on windows 2000/xp machines and try to start it first.

    hope this helps

    we wont need to have odbc driver to for mysql server management software, odbc is for client connectivity.
