Cannot deploy JBoss on Windows 7

I work for a company that uses JBoss to run our software and the software works great on XP and Vista. However when I was testing the software on Windows 7 it failed to deploy mysql. On other operating systems it explodes 'mysqld-nt.exe' to %JBOSS_HOME%/server/default/data/mysql/bin. On Windows 7 I get an error in the server log stating

ERROR [ org.jboss.deployment.MainDeployer] Could not create deployment: file:/%JBOSS_HOME%/server/default/mysqld-service.xml
org.jboss.deployment.DeploymentException: Resource '5-0-51a/Windows_7-x86/mysqld-nt.exe' not found; - nested throwable: (java.util.MissingResourceException: Resource '5-0-51a/Windows_7-x86/mysqld-nt.exe' not found)

JBoss fails to start up due to this. Why would JBoss be trying to run MySQL from a different directory on Windows 7?

I have been running JBoss AS (4.0.5, 4.2.x and 5.x) on Windows 7 since the first beta, CR 1 and RTM using JDK 5 and 6 without any issues.

I have no idea what you are talking about regarding 'mysqld-nt.exe'. How did you install MySQL? I installed mySQL on my Windows 7 systems without any issue and am using JBoss AS to access the MySQL databases without any issues.

The mysqld-nt.exe file is use to run MySQL as a service - that file should not appear in the JBoss AS directory. On my system it is located at "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\bin\mysqld.exe". Hmm, different name, what version of MySQL are you running? I have the 64-bit version of MySQL 5.1.37 installed on my 64-bit Windows 7 Professional on my laptop. If I recall correctly, mysql-nt.exe is for an older version of MySQL, perhaps 4.x.

Where did this file come from: file:/%JBOSS_HOME%/server/default/mysqld-service.xml??? It is not part of JBoss AS.

We have mysql bundled in the deployment jars. It explodes it on the first deployment and launches it. This method works great on all OS's other than 7.
