SQL does not start

I do have a problem with MySQL installation.

Initially I have installed mysql-8.0.11-winx64 under XAMPP with en error message MSVCP140.dll cannot be executed.

Then I have re-installed XAMPP and mysql-5.7.21-win32.zip with the result as show in the screenshot

Whatever configuration changes are made, neither mysql-8.0.11 or mysql-5.7.21 function.

Thanks in advance for suggestions solving this problem


Hi @ronnykock,

This looks to be an update to your post Mysql error on XAMPP, is that correct? If so, it’s helpful to have questions related to the same event tied together in the same thread.

Also, you screenshot indicates that to get help with this problem, you should post the entire log into the MySQL forums. It’s possible that someone here may be able to help you, but if you aren’t getting the help you need, you might want to look into those forums.
