I successfully installed this version a few weeks ago. I decided not to use it and (I think) I deleted all instances of it from my programs-program files, etc. I want to re-install it again, but the downloader for the MySQL Windows (x86, 64bit) version will not proceed past 50% progress line of "PLEASE WAIT WHILE WINDOWS CONFIGURES MySQL Installer - Community". Can someone help me solve this issue?

How to repeat:
Restart computer, remove from Program Files, try again, same thing

Same problem. I love it when people solve the problem and choose not to share the solution as is the case here. Quite frustrating.

I had the same issue, which the installer hanging at halfway through.  There were multiple instances of the installation process in task mananger, killing one allowed the UAC prompt/admin log in window to pop up to continue installing on Windows 10.

to v8.1.15.   trying 2 dozen variants of install to no avail.

there was a comment from 2013.
I had the same problem in 2019, and it is still occurring, and no 'solution' is posted!
Come on, folks!
