"After Installing, i tried some internet stuffs(mysqld --console) to verify the installation."

I'm not sure what you mean by this.

Some thoughts:

  • Is MySQL running as a service? Open the Task Manager using Ctrl-Alt-Del and click the Services tab, then look for "MySQL" in the list.
  • Are you using the MySQL command-line client? Look in the Start menu under MySQL -> MySQL Server [version number], and click "MySQL Command Line Client". For me, a command line window opens and requests my password.
