Re: Bls: Serious problem with latest (10.0.16) Windows installer - destroys services.


Hi Peter,

(Windows) user and can handle it. As I wrote: it is not a big problem (add:
if you understand what happened). It just took a little time to figure out
that MariaDB 10.0.16 Windows installer was the culprit.

Of course, I didn't mean you, I was replying to email from 'Irwanto'. It came to my box with a bit weird subject format, so I didn't realize it was a reply to yours, and thought it was a new independent report of the same problem until I already sent my answer.

Anyway, my personal apologies to everyone affected by the issue. I will try to add MSI upgrade tests in buildbot, we don't have them now.


But it could be a 'showstopper' for novice users, that upgrading MariaDB
removes the existing service(s).   Anyway. I think you replaced the
installers in a timely manner, and few people will be affected, probably.
We will help those affected, if any.

Destroying services is a problem of 10.0.16 MSI packages released earlier,
see https://mariadb.atlassian.net/browse/MDEV-7531 for more details.

The packages have now been fixed and re-uploaded; unfortunately they won't
help you if you have already gotten your services removed. I couldn't quite
understand from your text whether you have re-created the services already;
if not, please see the last comment to the JIRA issue above about how it
can be done. If you have 5 server instances on one machine, you might have
to re-create all 5 services. If you experience a problem while re-creating
services or know a better way to do it than described in the comment,
please let us know.

I apologize for the inconvenience that this bug caused.

I think because the .msi installer use one name in windows add/remove

I use 5 instance service in one computer with different port and i use
.msi but with manual extractor using universal extractor and run my manual
script to create first data dir and install service
