I did what you said, now I understand what you say that there is no
sence in what I wanted to do.But I gave these commands as follows But it did
not work.What I want is to specify a configuration file which is placed in
the WINDOWS directory.The commands I ran
C:\>NET STOP MySQL
C:\>mysqld-nt --install MYSQL "--defaults-file=\"c:\WINDOWS\my.ini\""
Service successfully installed.
C:\>net start mysql
System error 2 has occurred.
The system cannot find the file specified.
Why is the file not able to be found, I have taken my.ini out of the MySQL
installation directory and placed it in the WINDOWS directory.
Are there other commands to start a service apart from NET commands,like
