my.ini is for the server installation, not the software installation, and will be stored in your mysql folder.

It will depend on where you installed wamp. My copy is stored here:

C:\wamp\bin\mysql\mysql5.5.24\my.ini

Yours may differ.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

Well installing stuff and not knowing where it is does not bode well for a usable development environment.  You should have everthing documented.  If nothing else works just search from the search in windows explorer.

Note: I have wamp, xampp (uninstalled and deleted), php zend framework installed.
C:\xampp\ does not exist in windows explorer (even with show hidden files and folders).

Please do not just tell me to uninstall my entire computer so I can find the actual my.ini


using mysql workbench

menu->server->options file

there are error dialog boxes that appear stating I am not using the correct my.ini file and a new one has to be created.

there are error dialog boxes that appear stating I am not using the correct mysqld file and a new one has to be created.

When you start mySQL workbench you have the option of creating a new server instance. It looks like your Workbench is configured to connect to an old instance of mySQL (the xampp one) but since you've un-installed it, you'll need to re-configure Workbench.

When you start up Workbench, you'll see a panel for Server Administration - delete the entry that's there (you may have to right-click and select Delete Server Instance), and then create a new one (New Server Instance)

That should then pick up your server correctly.

You may also need to set up or a new connection or edit your existing connection details if the differ  between your XAMPP and WAMP installations.

Thanks

So I think I will uninstall and reinstall -- when stuff starts going wrong.
Until then, mysql is running

And I should keep track of my own computer installations.
