Unable to connect to localhost mysql
Posted by: sen pai ()

New installation.
Windows XP Home SP2.
mysql 4.1.12a-nt installed with installer (named pipes, no TCPIP).
mysql system tray monitor startup database: success.
mysql command line client (root password) success (can perform queries, etc).
"status" command says:
current database:
current user: root@localhost
connection: named pipe: mysql

mysql Administrator 1.0.21 cannot connect. I supply parameters:
server host: localhost
username: root
password: <rootpassword>
named pipe: mysql
(I also tried username: root@localhost, and all permutations of all paramters)

mysql 1.1.13 cannot connect.
same parameters as mysql Administrator above.

I tried connecting within a "DOS prompt" window (i.e. Start -> Run -> cmd), but no connection success there. I suspect the environment variables are not set up in that environment, because I know the PATH is not set up (I have to change directories to the bin directory to even attempt to run the programs).

Please help?
