  1. I was reading your article that is posted here:

    I am tryin to Start and Stop the MySQL server that is on my PC. I am using vb 2008 EE and I have had some practise at using MySQL and VB. I have tried Consolie.WriteLine(“NET STOP MYSQL”) – Nothing I tried your snippet that you have posted. Nothing as well, do you have any other ideas?

    • Hi Scottie, did you get any messages? Also do you run MySQL as a service?

      • Yes. I have both Apache2.2 and MysQL5.1 running as a Service. I have tried using Shell() command. I dont sure what I am doing wrong.

      • what msg do u get if you type at the cmd prompt? net stop MySQL
        Check also under services (Start -> Run -> services.msc) and check the service name for MySQL
