i've never installed mysql on vista but it's available here:
[dev.mysql.com...]

you can access it from perl using the perl DBI and DBD::mysql modules:
[dev.mysql.com...]

I always use the "Without installer (unzip in C:\)" version of MySQL and then start MySQL as a Windows Service [dev.mysql.com].

Using the "unzip in C:\" version allows me to move this from one Windows machine to another with no effort or issue.
