    Question error message

    I installed mysql and it works find. For some reason, i deleted mysql from control panel add/remove program.
    Today, I am reading the book "database driven website using php and mysql. I downloaded again the mysql 4.0.20a-win and unzip the file and save the in my c: drive. I configured a file my.ini and save it in C:\Windows directory.

    When I click the winmysqladmin.exe, I get the error message " This application has failed to start because LIBMSQL.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix the problem"

    I wanna uninstall the mysql properly? Can anyone help me? I wanna start all over again.

    My operating system is window xp.

    Hope to hear from you..

    I would use add/remove programs to remove it. Then delete the mysql directory. Then run the MySQL windows installer. You should have a fresh install after that.
