Thank you for the bug report. I could not repeat either with 6.3.10 or 8.0.11 rc development release version. Check if the server is effectively running using a command line with Administrator privileges (below example with a service named mysql57)

C:\WINDOWS\system32>sc query mysql57

SERVICE_NAME: mysql57
        TYPE               : 10  WIN32_OWN_PROCESS
        STATE              : 1  STOPPED
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 0  (0x0)
        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0
        WAIT_HINT          : 0x0

C:\WINDOWS\system32>net start mysql57
The MySQL57 service is starting..
The MySQL57 service was started successfully.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>sc query mysql57

SERVICE_NAME: mysql57
        TYPE               : 10  WIN32_OWN_PROCESS
        STATE              : 4  RUNNING
                                (STOPPABLE, PAUSABLE, ACCEPTS_SHUTDOWN)
        WIN32_EXIT_CODE    : 0  (0x0)
        SERVICE_EXIT_CODE  : 0  (0x0)
        CHECKPOINT         : 0x0
        WAIT_HINT          : 0x0

after you sure it is running check the connection using the mysql.exe client.
