MySQL Service problem.



I'm running my own server. It was all good and working perfectly before, and now the service won't start.

All I get is this stupid error (see screenshot):

Error 193: 0xC1

I've tried uninstalling the service and reinstalling it again. No avail. Then I uninstalled MySQL (it was 3.23.49) and installed the latest version (3.23.51) and it still won't work. Same error and all that.

I've also tried changing the Run As thingie (the Log On tab) to Administrator with password, but it still won't work. Same error and all that.

Can someone please help me? It's for my site. I want to keep it alive. It's pretty popular. It has a quite active board.


I've looked about everywhere and then I found out that error means that the service isn't a valid Win32 application. Now I know what's wrong, but how do I fix that?


No one cares, eh? *shakes head*

Well, fine. I'll attempt to fix this damned problem by myself.


Well, yeah... As you can see in my edit in the first post, I figured out what the problem was (invalid Win32 application), but that's very weird, because it has worked fine before. I've reinstalled everything and all that, but still no avail.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
