I installed MySQL Server 5.0 on my new Windows Vista PC. I was able to successfully configure and start the server the first two times. Instead of doing the proper shutdown, I accidentally closed the MySQL Command Line Client. Now, I am not able to start the server again. Could somebody please suggest me on how to start the MySQL Server again. I tried doing this ---went to c:\ProgramFiles\MYSQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin and clicked on mysqladmin. A Window comes and disappears on me. When I click on mysql under bin---a window comes and disappears on me. Need Help please
