    The recommendation use the dbVis . The client runs on the Mac, Windows and Linux and that supports a variety of database servers, including PostgreSQL.

    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

    You can access mySQL in command line just by typing:

    C:\www\mysql\bin> mysql -u root -p

    After which you can type sql commands normally such as:

    mysql> SHOW DATABASES;

    Here, I am assuming you mySQL installation directory is C:\www\mysql.

    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.
