    When you installed mysql what did you set password to?
    Username is root. Then you assign a password to that.

    if you set a username and password in the my.ini file, then when you run programs like the mysqlcli and mysqladmin and myisamchk, they will try to use the username and password in the my.ini file if you don't specify one on the command line.
