I all,
I've just installed Mysql on a WinXPprof SP2 machine and I have a problem with the default user with mysql client.

Once the server is started and I try to connect to it, the user used by the client is "@localhost". In fact, I'm experiencing the following behaviour:

With the command C:\mysql\bin>mysqlshow I can see only the database "Test"
and if I give the command C:\mysql\bin>mysqlshow mysql , the reply is "Access denied for user: "@localhost" to database "mysql"

With the command C:\mysql\bin>mysqlshow -u root I can see the databases "test" and "mysql" and the "mysqlshow mysql" command works properly.

As a result I have to specify each time that I'm the root...

Anybody can help?
