Performing an Unattended Uninstall of MySQL in Windows

The MySQL Installer is an easy way to install and maintain your MySQL installations on Microsoft Windows.

It comes not only with the database server and documentation, but also with the underrated MySQL Workbench, and various connectors and support utilities such as MySQL for Excel. Modifying the installed products or uninstalling them is also fairly straightforward: 

 Start -> All Programs -> MySQL -> MySQL Installer -> MySQL Installer

  • Add/Modify Products and Features
  • Check for Updates

MySQL Installer, once again

First an apology. I have not been blogging much lately, but I do have a reason, and I think a valid one for once (i.e. not along the lines of "I was out drinking last night" or "I was busy boiling potatoes" or something), I have been moving house. And my new office is now as tidy as ever (and if you believe that, let me tell you about a bridge in New York that I have for sale at a really good price). No, the place is a mess, but my beautiful wife keeps up with me, and I am slowly getting things together.

MySQL Installer part 2

OK, I was having too much fun in my last post on this subject, so I try again. Just to be safe i Uninstall MySQL Installer, reboot my machine, and download the Installer again.

Think think think.. Whammo:
Yes, I am aware this is running on Swedish Windows, but let's try it on a US Windows 7 installation....

Downloaded and tried it on this machine, and now the installer runs at least. The "configuration" step doesn't actually do much. The Connector/.NET installation still insists on not finding a download location at …

First attempts with MySQL Installer

This was a sad day for me. I once, when I was at MySQL, was a big fan of a better installer for MySQL on Windows. Something that would install all you wanted on just Windows, in a way applicable for Windows and integrating with the appropriate Windows products. So installing MySQL would not just install MySQL, it would also install the Visual Studio plugin for MySQL, for example, if you so requested (and the installer might even be so smart so it could check if VS was installed, and then ask you politely if you wanted the plugin). The same goes for ODBC drivers, .NET drivers and what have you not.

Fact is, I had this idea a long time ago and was promoting it inside MySQL with my usual frenzy when I think I have a good idea, although I wasn't the first to have this idea.

So, now, after all these years, and I have even left MySQL since, this Installer is soon ready for prime time, MySQL Installer is at it's last RC before …

All you need to do is save it to the directory that you want to install to and then make sure it’s executable: “chmod 700”, then run it “./”.
