Have you tried removing it completely and re-installed?

I am running the same version on my XP Pro without any difficulties. If you give me some more information I'll probably be able to help you more.

hmm, i've been usin mysql on w2k server as a service for some time.
it does allow the service to start any moment but u should still try and set it to auto-start just to check.
if u don't want trouble duplicate the material profile (is it the correct english name ?) and set the betaprofile to autostart if u don't want to risk a nasty crash, if not the debug mode should let you start windows even on such failures)

193 %1 is not a valid Win32 application. ERROR_BAD_EXE_FORMAT
info from the excellent and bookmarked http://www.netop.com/tech/support/errorcodes/win32_error_codes.htm

where did u get the mysql version ? did u try another source ?

actually this may solve the problem even if nobody knows why as this error can happen for many reasons which have nothing to do with the contents of the exe files... (thanks bill :) ... and believe me i talk from (nasty) experiences.

I had a similar problem under XP and fixed adding a my.ini file (if not there) under c:\windows with the following settings:

[WinMySQLAdmin]
Server=C:/Program Files/MySQL/bin/mysqld-nt.exe

[mysqld]
basedir=C:/Program Files/MySQL
datadir=C:/Program Files/MySQL/data


(of course matching the correct paths).

I hope it helps!

Dave.
