Why?

i would like to start mysql like Xampp-controll do(you clcik button start and its starts without cmd dos box),

Where's the different?
a) you must run the XAMPP controll to start MySQL
b) you must run a batchfile to start MySQL

In both situations you must start an other program, which you can see, first.

BTW:
I think, without "--standalone" and/or "--console" there is no open window left.

way i don't wonna services? becouse i don't know how to control services from Delphi, and/or how to control them.

Where's the different?
a) you must run the XAMPP controll to start MySQL
b) you must run a batchfile to start MySQL


no i am developing an application and i wonna start mysql within this app. and when i close app. then i wonna stop server, so i can execute mysql-start.bat in application. I just tried this "mysql\bin\mysqld --defaults-file=mysql\bin\my.cnf "(without --standalone) but stil i see dosbox???? and i know is posible tho start without dosbox couse xampp-control does.

no i am developing an application ... so i can execute mysql-start.bat in application.

Then you should read a Delphi manual?

BTW:
"xampp-control.exe" uses the C++ "_spanwn" / "CreateProcess"-function
and "xampp_start.exe" uses the C++ "WinExec"-function

to start the server binary directly.
