Hello, this issue was fixed as part of MySQL Installer 1.4.39.
To get the latest version attempt to perform a catalog update from the Main Dashboard and accept the prompt to upgrade Installer.
Remove the failed installation and attempt to install a 5.6 server. Installation and configuration should now succeeed.

Regards.
