I am posting this question here cause i dont see any other place. I recently updated my windows pc running xp SP3 and now when i start the command prompt to retrieve info from mysql using the command line option, this one appears for a very small while before it goes off immediately.

does any one knows how to solve this?

You need to be clearer...

Are you using a batch file or issuing a complex command using a shortcut?

If you are using a batch file, then add pause to the final line - this will keep the command window open while you read the results.

If you are using a shortcut, then using the /K switch may keep the window open.

If you are attempting to simply open a command prompt to enter a query manually and that is failing, try the batch file method above and report back.
