If you use the developer setup in the configuration wizard, and you set the number of connections low, then it ends up setting innodb_buffer_pool_size=1280K

How to repeat:
1.  Run server instance configuration wizard.
2.  Choose developer machine.
3.  Choose multi-functional database.
4.  Set number of connections manually to 10 (not sure if this is required or not..)
5.  Try to start the service for the first time ever.
6.  Check error log to see error message.

Suggested fix:
Don't allow innodb_buffer_pool_size to be set that low.  It seems it needs to be set to at least around 6M in order to startup the first time.
