 MySQL Installation Wizard is a new installer for the MySQL server that
 uses the latest installer technologies for Microsoft Windows. The MySQL
 Installation Wizard, in combination with the MySQL Configuration Wizard,
 allows a user to install and configure a MySQL server that is ready for
 use immediately after installation.
 The MySQL Installation Wizard is the standard installer for all MySQL
 server distributions, version 4.1.5 and higher. Users of previous
 versions of MySQL need to manually shut down and remove their existing
 MySQL installations before installing MySQL with the MySQL Installation
 Wizard. See  mysql-install-wizard-upgrading for more information
 on upgrading from a previous version.
 Microsoft has included an improved version of their Microsoft Windows
 Installer (MSI) in the recent versions of Windows. Using the MSI has
 become the de-facto standard for application installations on Windows
 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. The MySQL Installation
 Wizard makes use of this technology to provide a smoother and more
 flexible installation progress.
 The Microsoft Windows Installer Engine was updated with the release of
 Windows XP; those using a previous version of Windows can reference
 this Microsoft Knowledge Base article
 (;EN-US;292539) for
 information on upgrading to the latest version of the Windows Installer
 Further, Microsoft has introduced the WiX (Windows Installer XML) tool
 set recently. It is the first highly acknowledged Open Source project
 from Microsoft. We switched to WiX because it is an Open Source project
 and it allows us to handle the complete Windows installation process in
 a flexible way with scripts.
 Improving the MySQL Installation Wizard depends on the support and
 feedback of users like you. If you find that the MySQL Installation
 Wizard is lacking some feature important to you, or if you discover a
 bug, please use our MySQL Bug System ( to request
