I am trying to install MySQL 5.5.27 (latest) quietly from the Windows (XP) command line via batch file using the MSI method. Following the directions on the MySQL site, I simply do this:
msiexec /i /quiet mysql-5.5.27.msi
Things install fine, but the Windows service will not start. The reason is obvious, but I can't figure out the solution. When I look at the service properties, the path to executable is:
C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\bin\mysqld-nt
But it is supposed to be:
C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\bin\mysqld
I've tried using sc to uninstall and re-install the service with the proper name, but I can't get around timeout error 1053. When I run the full blown installer, this problem does not occur. Can someone help?
