      The page at http://www.mysql.com/downloads/mysql, already contains MSI installer which is around 30mb in size. If you are using zip archive then you’ll have to manually install it.

    Thanks for your help, I am almost there. The installs and the modification all seem to work, no errors flashed. When I try to execute the phpinfo file in my browser I see the text ” ” and not the actual result of the PHP state in detail. I tried this with another file with the same result. I would appreciate a note if you recognize this problem.
    Once again thanks!

    Just going from xp to windows 8, this was a huge help with the setup. Originally made the mistake of putting my server programs in C:program files then finding windows wouldn’t let me save anything to it – kept telling me ‘access denied’. Now created a separate D partition, put it in there and all seemd good so far. Adding my data tomorrow and fingers crossed all will be well.

    Note on the installer: The site indicates the installer is 32bit, but it is actually both (duh, after I stopped and READ the website I saw that).

    I am struggling a bit with the install only because the screen shots don’t exactly match what I am seeing. I don’t have all the same options etc. But this is extremely helpful – thanks!
