Unable to install on Windows 10

Unable to install on Windows 10

I have installed MySQL-5.7 without any problems but when I try to install the openunderwriter I am getting this error message

C:\openunderwriter-community-3.0>cd bin

C:\openunderwriter-community-3.0\bin>run.bat

OpenUnderwriter Database Setup
==============================
The first time that you run OpenUnderwriter, this script will create databases in
MySQL and populate them with content, it will also create an OpenUnderwriter database
user. To do this successfully the script will need the username and password
of a user who has the necessary permissions to create database and users.
This user will only be used to run the scripts. The OpenUnderwriter server itself
will use the less privileged user created by the scripts.

You will not be prompted for these user details again.

Please enter your MySQL username (default: root):admin
Please enter your MySQL password (leave blank for no password):**************

Checking environment...
MySQL cannot be executed. Please make sure that the [MySQL HOME]/bin folder is on the PATH.

How can I resolve this? Please, help.

Re: Unable to install on Windows 10

Hi,
When OU runs for the first time it needs to create some databases in MySQL and populate them with data. To do that it needs to execute mysql. The error your getting is simply OU's setup script letting you know that it can't see the mysql command. Almost certainly this is because the MySQL bin folder isn't in the PATH.

The following link takes you though the process in detail: http://stackoverflow.com/a/23841529

I hope that helps.

Regards,
Dick.
