config file not found

Hi -

I have newly installed MySQL Server 5.1 (via mysql-essential-5.1.50-win32.msi) and MySQL Workbench 5.2 CE (via mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.28-win32.msi) on my Windows XP system.

I also have an Apache/Tomcat Server on this system if that makes a difference, though only for localhost development.

The error that comes up is when I run the section of the Workbench "Create New Server Instance Profile". One has to do this in order to be able to connect to their copy of MySQL initially, right?

When I run this program, and get to the "Test Settings" step, I get the following error:

What find_config_file/local
Check if can be accessed
Operation failed: File doesn't exist

It is possible to continue on and establish a connection with MySQL instance on localhost, but this connection seems buggy. For instance, when I go into the Administrator, and try to turn the database service off, it give an error and will not complete the operation.

I have deleted everything and reinstalled with standard settings.
I have run MySQL from the command line utility with no problem, and have created a DB there and a table. I have viewed the table with the Workbench. But as I said, aspects of the workbench seem rather dubious.

Another aspect: from the "Configuration" tab of the Administrator, if I try to "apply" changes to my configuration, I get this error
IOError: [Errno 22] invalid mode ('r') or filename: u''

Also, the listing at the bottom of the configuration file name is blank.

When I examine the directory c:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\ I do see that there is a my.ini file present and readable.

I tried searching for a fragment of the error message in the forums (the find_config_file part) figuring if someone else had this problem, they would have included the error message via cut-and-paste, but couldn't find a similar error message.

Any suggestions? I would like to get my configuration working as well as possible before going to the next step which is linking to MySQL via Java servlets (using Eclipse IDE).

Many thanks!!
