I have MySQL several months installed on my WinXP Proff. After one restart the MySQL server couldn't start. I tried make some repairs, but nothing helped. So I installed new MySQL version 4.0.16. I'm using MyODBC 3.51.06. My .err contains only:
031216 12:20:04 InnoDB: Started
031216 12:20:04 MySql: Got signal 11. Aborting!
