I am running Win7 64bit Ultimate and have installed XAMPP 3.2.1 to L:\XAMPP\. When I open Control Panel as Administrator, all items start except SQL. It tries to start the Service and that is as far as it gets. I have deleted the SQL Service that was running from LINUX on L:. When I try to Start MySQL from Windows it says it cannot find the File. When opening Control Panel with Administrator Privileges, do these privileges get passed to MySQL also??????
Why can't these Packages be designed to Install and Configure themselves, so that Novices like myself do not encounter these types of problems?????
I have read a lot about this problem but have not yet found a simple straight forward answer to solve it. Can someone please provide the answers I need to get MySQL up and running.
