Re: Mysql Administrator error "Could not find settings"

This happens because MySQL Administrator cannot find the location of your My.ini file. To correct this, go to Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services and check the Properties entry (right-mouse click) against MySQL.

What you are looking for is 'Path to executable:'.

This probably reads as
C:\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe MySQL

It needs to be changed to
"C:\mysql\bin\mysqld.exe" --defaults-file="C:\WINDOWS\MY.INI" MySQL

The only way I have found of doing this is to alter the Registry, using Regedit.

The key to be changed is
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MySQL\ImagePath

You need to modify the key to read as above, including the quotes.

Stop and restart the MySQL service, and MySQL Administrator should then work correctly.
