MySQL5 install failure

Hi all,

I am trying to install MySQL 5 onto a Windows 2003 server.

I leave all defaults in place but when nearing the end of the install I receive the following error.

mysql-server-5.5-win32-gpl:100 - Unable to configure service

the service is created in the Windows Services mmc, I get the option to try again which I have done but get the same error again. This creates another service with a _1 annotation and using the next up port.

any help appreciated.
TIA
Gareth

In addition I also have the following errors in the windows app log.

I had the same problem. I solved it with some "post installation" procedures to start the server:

Also, I strongly recomend WAMP.
