When I select the MySQL server products in the product tree, an unhandled .Net exception is raised.

System.FormatException: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.
   at System.DateTime.Parse(String s)
   at WexInstaller.Core.Package.get_Published()
   at WexInstaller.Wizards.AddProductsWizard.SelectProductsPage.productTree_AfterSelect(Object sender, TreeViewEventArgs e)
   at System.Windows.Forms.TreeView.TvnSelected(NMTREEVIEW* nmtv)
   at System.Windows.Forms.TreeView.WmNotify(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.TreeView.WndProc(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)

After clicking continue, it will not allow that component to be added.

How to repeat:
Run the all in one installer and, on the "Select Product and Features" page, select "MySQL Server 5.6.21 - X64" or "MySQL Server 5.6.21 - X86".

Hello Deanna

Thank you for the report.
This is most likely duplicate of Bug #74117

Seems similar to following reporting:

Thanks, I agree, it looks similar. Slightly different manifestation though.
I'll leave as separate until someone in the know can confirm it's the same issue.

It is however the same exception as bug #74210 that has already been flagged as a duplicate.
I'm not sure how I missed that one...
