    Unanswered: Unable to start service

    I installed My SQL on Xp Professional. I can't get the connection to start up. When I go to Administrative tools to start, I get "Could not start MYSql service on local computer. Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified." Any ideas?

    Is it installed under c:\mysql? Is your 'data' directory c:\mysql\data? Do you have a c:\windows\my.cnf or my.ini file? Did you first test the server by just opening a console and typing 'mysqld --console'?
