'Successful' install of MP2.2.2 on W8.1 - but can't connect to sql db (1 Viewer)

after the 'successful' install, when I try "C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MP2-Server\Plugins\SlimTV.Service3\SetupTv.exe" /Configure-DB , I can't connect to a DB. I think the previous MySQL installation was damaged and is now removed. However the install doesn't seem to want to replace it. Any thoughts on encouraging it to?

    MP2 is not working with MySQL but with SQLite (much faster and no need for an external full blown database server). And the TV Part is not running as a stand alone service, it's simply a plugin of the MP2 server. So you can't configure any database with SetupTV.exe as the MP2 server is doing all the DB related stuff. The command you've used is a remaining from MP1 and did not work with MP2 as it is not necessary at all.

    MP2 don't remove or replace any MySQL stuff as it didn't use any...
