There are two typos in the my.ini file generated by the MySQL Server Instance Configuration Wizard. This file is the one located in C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7 on Windows 7 (32-bit).

1) (At or near line 20): "# To run run the server..." should be "# To run the server..." (i.e., delete duplicate word 'run')

2) (At or near line 32): "# Guildlines for editing this file" => s/b "Guidelines"

Also: elsewhere in this file, should "tablespace" be "table space"? (Two separate occurrences.)

How to repeat:
Run the MySQL Server Instance Configuration Wizard

Suggested fix:
1) Delete a word

2) Correct misspelled word

ETA: also consider changing '\Data' to '/Data' in the following line in order to be consistent with the use of '/' for the paths:

# Path to the database root
datadir=C:/ProgramData/MySQL/MySQL Server 5.7\Data

Typos fixed.
The tablespace word is OK as is (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tablespace)

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Installer 1.4.24 release, and here's the changelog entry:

A few comments within the my.ini file generated by MySQL Installer were
updated for clarity.

Thank you for the bug report.
