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.
i had the same exact problem just today, and i have windows xp too. i installed the database, then i got the error message about the missing file. i removed it using Add/Remove programs, installed it again and got the same problem. i d/led the installer from another mirror to see if that would solve the problem but it didnt.
i'm completely new to this, so please please, help me!
