>>Go to and download the utility listed under 'Service Installer'. The zip file conatins SRVINSTW.exe which can be used to remove the service named - 'mysql' - be careful!

This should sort out the 'Error:0 cannot create windows service for MySQL' issue.

Hope this helps out.


TIM, thaks so much. This did it for me. I managed to uninstalkl the annoying existing Mysql service that was giving me Error 0, and now I have managed to install MYSQL!!!

Got over that hurdle lets see how the next ones go (This is my third install of Apache-Mysql-PHP) and so far haven't managed to work with it...
