Here is another suggestion. Since I have already installed MySQL, but 
not in the default location, but still added to my path.

I would love it if you could define a variable for it (at the top off 
the script) to override the default assumption, still hard-coded in the 

Extra points if you could try and detect the path to mysql using 
something like this:

  which mysql.exe

Or if no occurrence off mysql is found in the path environment using 
something like this (which takes a bit longer than the previous off course):

  find /c/Program\ Files/ -name mysql.exe -type f

In case it is not found you can revert to the default value, but I 
prefer you would assign this to a variable (still).

Kind regards,
