I have been working on an installer that does several things. The part I'm having trouble with is getting some .sql files to set up the database, user, permission, and initial table structure for the application.

For reference, I am using MySQL 5.1 and Inno Setup 5 on Windows XP.

Using the [Run] section to run the command line mysql didn't work because it wouldn't allow the file to be piped in.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
[Run]
; this doesn't work
Filename: "c:\program files\mysql\mysql server 5.1\bin\mysql.exe"; Parameters: " -u user < file.sql "

What do you mean by "doesn't work"?  
Looking at the Run command, the "user" may be causing you a problem.  
What do you get if you run the exact same thing from a command prompt?  I used the following and it seemed to work:

[Run]
; this doesn't work
Filename: "c:\program files\mysql\mysql server 5.1\bin\mysql.exe"; Parameters: " -u root < file.sql "
