Installer detects incorrect mysql version

On two separate machines now I have ran into this same problem.

I have installed the latest version of WAMP which comes with Mysql 5.5.8, and also manually removed that and installed mysql-5.5.12. Regardless, the install script for Form Tools reports this as the version installed:

MySQL Version mysqlnd 5.0.7-dev - 091210 - $Revision: 304625 $ FAIL

If I attempt to ignore the MySQL version failure, I get this error upon attempting to run the install script:

The following error occurred:

• You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'TYPE=MyISAM DEFAULT CHARSET=utf8' at line 6

Any pointers would be extremely appreciated



I modified files/sql.php and removed all 28 occurrences of "TYPE=MyISAM " from the CREATE TABLE queries.

I've encountered this several times while trying various scripts. Is this just something peculiar about the windows versions of mysql or.....?


EDIT #2:

Ok so apparently "TYPE" isn't liked, but "ENGINE" is. Soo.. Using notepad++ i did a mass replace on all files extracted for Form Tools, replacing "TYPE=MyISAM" with "ENGINE=MyISAM". It found another 9 occurrences aside from the earlier 28 inside of sql.php

hope this helps someone
Boy, that's a pain.

So the "TYPE" keyword is now deprecated by MySQL. They say use "ENGINE". But on older systems, ENGINE doesn't work. *sigh*

I haven't found a workaround yet other than manually creating a test table to see if either works, which is obviously a hideous solution... I'll do some more snooping.

Form tools have a list of documents with the download firms to get data or have parties among the extensions. Tools of friction that need to install the facts that have threads to put edubirdie australia with the incorrect version of the software that can share on it.
