FYI: Mysql on Vista Home

AlexNAlexN ContributorCurrent User Role Advisor
The latest MySQL (5.1.30) setup does not work properly on Vista Home Edition. I think that MySQL team will solve it eventually, so here's how to make it work:

1. DO NOT install into the directory that setup offers. Change both install dir and data dir to something that does not contain spaces, e.g. c:\mysql, c:\mysql\data

2. Create your own my.ini file and add the following parameter there:
datadir = <your data dir here>

3. As administrator, run
mysqld --install --defaults-file=<your my.ini path here>

4. start service

That's all
