The attached error dialog is receive during the final configuration stage.  Through trial and error methodology, it appears to be associated with the "dedicated MySQL-server" option.

How to repeat:
The error message is received on the following install path:
0. Uninstall, and delete the previous install directory 
1. choose typical install
2. skip account signup
3. configure server-detailed
4. dedicated MySQL server ****
5. multifunction database
6. table space settings - c:\'install path'
7. decision support
8. enable tcp/ip - port 3306 / enable strict mode
9. standard char set
10. install as windows service, launch automatically
11. provide root pw

This is basically the default path clicking straight through the install, with the exception of #4.  I tried this four times, and each time the error was received.  If I hit 'Retry' between 2-6 times, the error will be dismissed and the install completed, apparently successfully.
