Experts - What he means is he needs the location of the mysql client program, because he is trying to run mysql from the windows command prompt and it gives him the standard "not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file." error message.

I'm not on windows so I cannot help here.

but that doesn't match the version in your original post...

Commented:
That's because he has at least two versions installed, one for WAMP and one for XAMPP.  Looks like 5.5.20 in WAMP and the 5.5.16 is probably from XAMPP.  It's a wonder that anything works at all.
Open the task manager

Find the running mysql process, right click and select "open location"

However, now that I've woken up, I'm wondering the better solution would be to suggest to uninstall both "stacks" and install the component parts individually, or just run one of the "stacks"...

There is also the thought that if you want to run Apache, Mysql and Php, then run it on Linux, perhaps in a Virtualbox VM, after all, you wouldn't want to deploy an AMP stack on Windows for a production environment unless you were particularly masochistic, and if its going to be deployed on Linux it should be developed on Linux, if itrs planned to be deployed on Windows, then use the Windows stack, which oddly enough seems to have reasonable performance and is significantly easier to install and update, granted not quite as simple as apt-get update, but much easier than Apache, Mysql and PHP on Windows.
