I'm having a hell of a time getting it to run at all on a NT4 server (Ok, not my choice but it's stuck on NT4 for at least another 2 weeks). Every time the mysql service starts, it bombs out instantly and I cannot get it to start 'standalone' either as it gives the error

"Can't initialize InnoDB as 'innodb_data_file_path' is not set"

I was under the impression that the MAX version had support for InnoDB, but the normal version does not? Is this some rouge code in the .38 build?
