Unable to install MySQL server on Windows 7



If you’re having trouble installing MySQL 5.1 on a Windows server try the below steps:
1) Remove previous MySQL installs (and remaining items ).
a.  Stop the MySQL service ( Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services)
b.  Remove MySQL using Windows Add or Remove Programs (Start -> Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs)
c.  Clean up (delete) the data directory  (assuming that you don’t have data that you need) c:  documents and settingsall users application data mysql.
d.  Clean up (delete) any remaining directories under program files c: program files MySQL MySQL Server 5.1 (or whatever version you’re using).
Now reinstall the software using the Msi file and make sure you reconfigure your Mysql Instance server.
