MySQL 4.1.8 Installation Errors

December 26, 2004 | Tags: | Leave a comment

I’m going to be on a plane for 12 hours Monday when I fly to Taiwan, so I figured I might as well do some php-mysql development to pass the time.  In preparation, I installed the latest MySQL 4.1.8 windows build onto my laptop.  However, when it came time to install the MySQL service, I got this error message:

“Resource messagedlg_confirmation not found.”

After some digging around I figured out that when my previous MySQL 4.0.x was uninstalled, the existing service was not removed. Thus, when MySQL 4.1.8 tried to install itself as a service, the previous installation was causing it to throw the error. The fix is to remove the following two keys from the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > ControlSet001 > Services > MySQL
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > ControlSet002 > Services > MySQL

After restarting, I ran the configuration wizard again, and this time it successfully installed the MySQL 4.1.8 service. Hopefully this will be helpful to others running into similar situations.
