Launch manual installation

Manual instalaltion is necessary in the following case:

  • you already have MySQL installation on the PC
  • you want to use existing MySQL instance as your database server
  • You want to install only server or only client on a PC
  • You have to define special installation folder, port number
  • you want to install the less components you need in your application

Extract the installation zip into a folder. Then launch "start-manual-windows.bat". During installation you have the option to install the server or client. First section describe the server installation and the next is the client installation. Thus you will have to launch the "start-manual-windows.bat" two times.
