I tried to configure MySQL server 5.5 on Windows and this is what I get
mysql-server-5.5-winx64:56 - Attempting to update security settings. mysql-server-5.5-winx64:100 - Unable to update security settings. Unable to connect to any of the specified MySQL hosts. mysql-server-5.5-winx64:62 - Attempting to verify command-line client shortcut.
Thoughts? I found this article on it, but not really sure what to do. http://forums.mysql.com/read.php?11,419964,431649#msg-431649 Tried getting random processes to work but didnt seem to change much
