Posted on 2002-06-26

I am running winNT 4.0 and just installed MySQL 3.23.51-nt. Everything seems to be in working order. I have set up a database and executed some commands and everything works fine as far as that goes.

However, when I try to start the mysqlbinlog program, I get a windows Application Error. Specifically saying:

The instruction at "0x00413df4" referenced memory at "0x74736574". The memory could not be "read".

Has anyone else seen this?

I am using the following command to start the application:

mysqlbinlog --log-bin=datalog

You don't need --log-bin, use

mysqlbinlog datalog

assuming datalog is your logfile name.

I tried that and I get the following error:

mysqlbinlog: File 'datalog' not found (Errcode: 2)

It looks like it thinks I am trying to open a current log file, not start logging. I simply want to start logging.

Thanks anyway.

That is what mysqlbinlog is for, viewing log files.  You mean to do:

mysqld --log-bin=datalog
