Thanks for the advice. That seems to work just fine.

I also wrote a small, quick and dirty Win32 console app which waits for 
the console to be closed and then runs a second process, allowing both 
mySQL and Apache to run in the same console and both be shut down 
properly when the window is closed. I've attached the source code in 
case anyone else tries to do the same kind of thing as I have tried. In 
my setup, runonclose is called with a cmd script as its parameter.

All the best,
