So today I was trying to install MySQL on my Windows Server 2008. I could get pass the first few steps. But when mysql tried to start it failed. So I did a little research and I found this, http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10703922/mysql-service-wont-start-on-windows-2008-server-r1, but I still could not get it to work. It told me I needed to install Microsoft .Net and Microsoft C++, which I did. So my question is how do I install mysql on windows server 2008?
