Re: ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'::ffff:' (using password: YES)

I don't have access to Vista, so this is a bit of a guess.

I expect that whatever user group mysql commandline client is being run by, will need to be able to access the mysql-init.txt file.

Can you assign permission on file mysql-init.txt of 'read' to all goups.

Failing this, in the link I posted, down the bottom of the page, in the comments section, is another method of resetting the password by using MySQL Administrator to start mysql while skipping the grants table.

Good luck,
