I noticed in my MySQL folder there is no mysql-test. Why is that?

Is it possible to add it?

You must one of the following situations:

  • Using an old version of MySQL/Windows (Missing from MSI or Zip File)
  • Using a current version of MySQL/Windows (Missing from MSI or Zip File)

I have MySQL 5.6.14 for Windows installed on my Desktop at Work

C:\>cd MySQL_5.6.14

C:\MySQL_5.6.14>dir
 Volume in drive C has no label.
 Volume Serial Number is A06D-D0B3

I went into the folder mysql-test

C:\MySQL_5.6.14\mysql-test>

It's there for me. I installed this a couple of month ago using the no-install zip file.

SUGGESTION

Download the latest no-install zipfile for MySQL 5.6.15 and look for the mysql-test folder

UPDATE 2013-12-16 13:00 EST

I just downloaded the no-install zip file. I looked in it and it is in there. Please download it and extract. Of course, make sure you have Perl installed on the Windows machine.
