  1. I suspect that image is copyrighted. I'm not a lawyer, but it might be safer to download it fresh. e.g. from
  1. I don't really want to have configuring a database as part of building and installing MythTV. There is a /database directory if we really need Windows specific DB bootstrapping, but for now, I would prefer that the script generates the nearly empty file

Nigel, re:

  1. Will make the changes to get the fresh image.
  1. It is an installer for the end user. If he is downloading mythinstaller, and mySQL as part of that installation, we should take care of initial DB configuration for our application. End goal is to have this done by a somewhat novice on Win32 - i expect that initially this will be frontend only.

Keeping the code externally will make it simpler to maintain. Lastly, it should always be optional if the installer runs this (as it is now). If the end user doesn't run it as part of the installer, he can always run it later after has has taken a look at it.

(In [17072]) Download a mysql.gif, and generate configuremysql.vbs. See #5207

I hacked rough code into the script, although when I run MythTvSetup?.exe, I didn't see the image, so I might have stuffed up somewhere. Re-open this if/when you have something better? In terms of MySQL, I'm really hoping that a standard install, plus 'mysql.exe < mythtv\database\mc.sql' is good enough.
