It would help if you had an actual /error message/ or /error code/

Try to start the service from the Services MMC console and/or look in the Windows Event log

Subject: [thelist] MySQL service won't start

I am trying to install MySQL on a windows machine running Vista, and
the service is failing to start. I did a google search and found
instruction to disable User Account Control (UAC) and I did that, but
the install is still not going through. Is there a way to determine
what is failing and why?
