In this article I am try to “solve” the 1053 error I got when installing MySQL 5.7.2. The first thing is trying to know what or who procuces the error. Reading this artiche confirms that it’s a Windows issue!
I keep on investigating, and on a new article the solution is to “clean the system”, and also proposing me a software to solve it. I installed it, and I got ” a few problems to solve”, but I am not in the mood of paying!!!
I try a second tool, a freeware one:
I manually remove the MySQL57 service:
I reinstall MySQL 5.7.2:
I hope that with my system clened the problem will be solved. I did exactly the same as when I got the error 1053, but …. the error rise again!:
I keep on learning
I continue investing how to solve the 1053 error, and I was surprised after reading this: http://forums.mysql.com/read.php?11,4460,38151#msg-38151. O sea, …
When you unsinstall MySQL, there is “something” that it doesn’t completely, because the service is not removed correctly
Woau!! It appears that this error coma from 2005, and in 2013 the error is still here! Because the previous service name is MySQL56, I decided to remove it, although it doesn’t exist!
My investigations continue, and after reading this article, I guess a possible consecuence of unsinstall MySQL:
When MySQL is uninstalled, and because the service is active, this cann’t be removed completly, so when installing a new version all files calls are made to the uninstalled MySQL version!
This makes sense … so … unistall again! Now I go to Windows Registry to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services.
I verified that the service is still there, although I unistalled it. I removed again.
Reading the coments of the past article, some one suggests to remove also the MySQL dirs like C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Program Data\MySQL:
I deleted the dirs, and install again for the third time.
The 1053 error again. I uninstall everything, I search on the registry for everything as “Mysql56” y “mysql57”, and remove the dirs … Now, everything is removed.
I hope tomorrow I will success on installing MySQL 5.7.2, but for today I can’t!
