Additional Info: The "Path to executable" contains a typo. But I can't remember the commands to remover the server from services and re-install it so it will re-read the ini file. I had recently gone through a melt down and renamed the original install folder after reinstalling Apache and php. When I originally installed the whole mess I made a mistake when naming the installation detination. During my reconstruction process I fixed the name and now when I right click on MySQL in the services and look at the properties I see it is looking for the bin folder under the, now renamed, folder.
Always happy to learn from pros.
