I get the following error message when I run the ConfigurationWizard as a user with administrator privileges on a Win2003 server box:

  Error adding firewall exception

  The error was:
  There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper
  Error code $00800706D9
  The installer must have been run with administrative privileges.

I had selected that the ConfigWizard should modify the firewall, while the "Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)" service was disabled on this box (which I didn't knew).

With "accepting" the shown error I could continue the ConfigWizard, mysqld starts and could be used at least local.

How to repeat:
- have the "Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS)" service disabled
- install and configure MySQL, using the 'mysql-essential...msi' with checked field to open the firewall in ConfigWizard

Suggested fix:
- check status of this service and report to user to prevent this message

On the same box when installing later the full package from the setup.exe it did not happen. At this time the mentioned service was running (although the firwall was switched off). So it looks to me that only the special case with "disabled" service leads to the problem.

Just ran into this same issue with MySQL 5.5.8 on Windows 7 x64.  Windows firewall service is disabled, as that functionality is subsumed by my Anti-Virus software.

As others allude to above, it looks like all the Config Wizard needs to do ischeck if the service is running or not before attempting to talk to it.

Please look at using an upgrade server shipped with the new MySQL Installer
