I am using mysql/php on Windows Xp. I tried the suggested method of resetting password in the documentation. But it does not work. This is what I did.

mysqladmin shutdown.

mysqld-nt.exe --skip-grant-tables

mysqladmin -u root password "mysql"

But I get this error:

'mysqladmin' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

mysqladmin: unable to change password; error: 'You must have privileges to updat
e tables in the mysql database to be able to change passwords for others'

Please help. What is wrong?
