unable to install MySQL (either 5.7 or 8.0) on Windows 10.  I have a desktop and a laptop.  Both have the latest updates.  I downloaded the latest community installer.  The installer get's to the "installing Server..." and the apology pop-up continually appears.  I cancel, do a complete erasure, reboot, update catalog, and repeat.  Same failure.

Hello Eric Peterson,

Thank you for the bug report.
I tried to reproduce the issue at my end using mysql-installer-community- but not seeing any issues with Install and upgrade.
Could you please provide step by step (exact screenshot, stack trace etc. - please make it as private if you prefer) to confirm this issue at our end?

Hello Eric Peterson,

Thank you for your feedback.
This is most likely duplicate of Bug #76476, please see Bug #76476

So, yes there is a bug in the installer.  When the apology pop-up occurs I went to Administration -> Services, Found MySQL80, clicked on Properties.  Changed to interact with desktop, then started the Service.  All went well.

This ticket can be closed as there is a workaround, annoying but a workaround.
