Re: Windows installer MWL#55 finished.



I came across an issue with the .msi from Oracle.
refer: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=60830

In short: if somebody installs a 'n-bit' version and on top of this a
'm-bit' version various inconsistencies happen inside Windows system menus.
 I concluded that

1) either: a n-bit of a x.y version should refuse to install if a m-bit of
same x.y
version is installed
2) or: n-bit and m-bit should should identify themselves so that Windows can
handle them
in parallel. (not only 'MySQL Server 5.5" but "MySQL Server 5.5 - 64 bit"

Is this something you have been considering?
