Cannot install MySQL server from the MSI installer given on the official site. I tried to install workbench, notifier, connector, and server. I successfully completed installing all those except MySQL server. It says installation failed and here are the brief log file details. Please help me.

How to fix this?

How to repeat:
Run the MSI installer given on the website.
Selected custom and server(x64).
Click execute and I get Installation Failed.

Hello  Amuktha,

Thank you for the bug report.
I could not repeat the issue at our end using Windows Installer with 5.7.20 version.
Please download from here: https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer

Same for me; OS = Windows 10 Enterprise, fresh installation.

Oh, and the link(https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/installer) of course produces the same error.

I have exactly the same problem.
Has anyone figured it out?

You can install the server manually (use the .zip version), follow the documentation online, and then use the executable to install workbench and all other components.
