I tried to install the package too, and I can confirm that there is the
same error.
the ...\library\mysql\libs is in the path
I copied an executable file into the directory named test123.exe
and used Start-> execute test123.exe
The program was executed

controll test:
I deleted the exeutable file
and used Start-> execute test123.exe  again
file not found.

so the path is ok but it isn't working

Did I miss something else?
Regards Knut
