Error 2003 (HY000): Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)

I resolved this situation following the following process. After adding the MySQL path to the environment, I kept invoking the program and then checking Event Viewer in the Application Log for MySQL errors that referenced old commands in the ini file. After removing them, what was hanging me up was that the installer was looking for errmsg.sys in a folder that didn't exist, inshare. Those folders DO exist, but on the same level, not nested. So I added the folder share to bin and copied errmsg.sys from share to the new nested share, and it worked. Now that its running, I intend to redo a proper configuration using the workbench, just to gets my ducks in a row. hth
