Let me tell u some facts about how i installed the Mysql server 4.1 on my windows XP machine
I installed them in the directory "c:\mysql"
instead of "c:\program files\mysql\mysql server 4.1" Which was the default directory
When I start Mysql command line chat from start button, it asks for the password when i enter the password or the empty password it gets exited without entering when i run mysql command from command line arguments from the C:\mysql\bin directory I get the error message Can't connect to MySql Server 4.1 on 'localhost' <10061>
Please Help
