MySQL command line client for windows.
You can choose only install the client during server install. The website only offers to let you download the full installer
In the install wizard, when prompted for installation type (typical, minimal, custom), choose ‘Custom’. On the next screen, select to NOT install the server, and proceed with the rest of the install as normal.
When you’re done, you should see just the relevant client programs (mysql, mysqldump, etc) in C:\Program Files\MySQL..\bin
When you go to the MySQL download page, choose the platform “Microsoft Windows”. Then download the “Windows (x86, xx-bit), ZIP Archive” (be sure to select the one with size over 140M.
The binaries will be in the “bin” folder.
I understand that this is not just the client binaries, but at least you don’t have to install and setup the entire server.
