Cant access mysql database after install

I've tried the the suggestions in these forums. None have worked.

This is a fresh install, and here's what I get:

Code: Select all
Setting environment for using XAMPP for Windows.

User@STEVE C:\xampp
# mysql -u root
ERROR 2017 (HY000): Can't open named pipe to host: .  pipe: MySQL (2)

User@STEVE C:\xampp
# mysql -u root -p
Enter password:
ERROR 2017 (HY000): Can't open named pipe to host: .  pipe: MySQL (2)


Was there some setup I missed? I don't remember anything specific regarding passwords. In the Xampp control panel, it shows Apache and MySql both running (as services).
