Having trouble with install. Installed twice (on XP), first time when I hit execute in configuration wizard, it said it couldn't conect to the port (3303 i think) to check firewalls, etc.

Looked around, turned off firewall and checked virus SW no luck.

Uninstalled, reinstalled. Hit execute button and no longer get the nice message, just fails. In Windows event veiwer there's a mysql application error " Default storage engine (InnoDB) is not available"

Me thinks a port problem but not sure how to fix.

HELP!

This is a weird one, what firewall was you using?

how are you starting mysql?

firewall shouldn't make any difference since it's all local.

are you sure that you've installed the correct mysql-server package for windows? because this sounds more like a mysql client problem.

In Windows event veiwer there's a mysql application error " Default storage engine (InnoDB) is not available"

Well, I would take seriously what the machine thinks that the problem is and change the line
default-storage-engine=INNODB
into
default-storage-engine=MYISAM
at C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\my.ini (usually it's there)
and then try again
(you can altern. comment the line out by using #. It isn't really necessary)

Maybe it will start. If it does then you must find out what the problem with INNODB tables is. Maybe something didn't go right during installation. Is it Windows XP SP2? Which exact version of MySql are you using?
