Comments - Installing MariaDB Windows ZIP Packages

I'm having troubles with this. When I run this (Version 5.5.33, win64), it starts, outputs a bunch of responses, then seems to freeze. The response text I get is:

It looks like everything worked, but I never get a new prompt, and nothing else happens either. Also, the task manager shows mysqld running.

(OS info: Windows 7 on a laptop. If you need more, ask: I'm new to troubleshooting)

PS: is there any way to get line breaks without a double-linebreak? As mentioned: I'm new to this.

Regarding the markup, when you are creating a comment, you can see a link to the syntax page at the bottom of the screen. It might help.

The output looks good.

You are not supposed to get a new prompt in the same screen. This is your server error output. It isn't frozen, it just printed everything about startup and has nothing more to say since there are no errors.

To start working with your running server, you need to open another command prompt and run the client program mysql.exe.
