Hello All,

I'm fairly new to MySQL and have encountered an installation problem. I am trying to install the windows service. Running mysqld --install seems to work OK and the service appears in the Services index as MySQL set to automatic.

However, when I try and start the service I get the following error:

Could not start the MySQL service on Local Computer.
Error 1067: The program terminated unexpectedly.

MySQL is installed at C:\Program Files\MySQL\mysql\
The service has the correct path to the executable & the registry seems to be correct.

Any help would be very much appreciated - many thanks.
