I do not know if anyone else was having trouble accessing the MySQL service from other applications
such as the MySQL Administrator GUI tools.

When I tried to use the tools I would receive an error message
“Either the service or the configuration file could not be found. Startup variables and service section are
therefore disabled.”

I was able to fix this problem by making a registry change and changing the
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MySQL\ImagePath entry

When the Web Developer suite is installed, the following registry entry is created:
"C:\www\mysql5\bin\mysqld-nt.exe" MySQL

and needs to be changed to
"C:\www\mysql5\bin\mysqld-nt.exe" --defaults-file="C:\www\mysql5\my.ini" MySQL

For other applications to access the config files.
