    Hey, I have a problem with installations laragon v4.0, 32bit, at the end of the installation I get the message 'unable to execute file: c:\users\aldi\appdata\local\temp\is-rk4fd.temp\vc_redist.x86.2013.exe' but the installation is complete. And I try to run the applications, but the service of MySQL cannot start, reason:
    The system cannot find the path specified.

    How to fix it?

    You can try using the Laragon option that will set paths for you. That should work.
    For the vc_redist.x86.2013.exe try redownloading it or more it from the currently directory to c:\Temp and do the install from there.
    You shouldn't have to manually set PATH but you can. I think it is:
    C:\laragon\bin\mysql\mysql-5.7.24-winx64
    or
    C:\laragon\bin\mysql\mysql-5.7.24-winx64\bin

    I'm not sure if your mysql is the same version , but follow the example, and just try adding the paths manually, usually a reboot might be in order for Windows to apply the path settings so it can find you mysql install.
