stupid question about MySQL installation

Recommended Posts

hi, i\'m having trouble installing MySQL in Windows XP, i\'m just now starting with PHP & MySQL and would like to get my feet off the ground. i tried several different releases, all with the same problem, i unzip them and run setup.exe and get an error:


Cannot find file [filepath]SETUP.EXE (or one of its components).

Check to ensure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.


anyone else had this problem? how can i fix it?
