I recently noticed that I had somenhow installed MySQL 5.5 to c:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint Ex.

I've unistalled it fully, renamed the Canon folder termporarily etc, but no matter what I do, it reinstalls there rather than in the C:\Program Files\MySQL area.

What am I missing?

Just a guess, but have a look in the registry - if you do a search for the folder name in regedit that will probably find the problem.

Done that - helped get a new clean install. Now if I can only get the instance configurator over the line....
Choose the "Custom" installation in the installer and you can pick where to install to.

Perfect. Its the only install package that blindly defaults to whereever! The only reason I can think of as to why the Canon print folder is that that was the previous install when I first put 5.5 on.
