Description:
Why does the stupid Mysql installer crib that I don't have Python 3.6 installed when I have a better version - Python 3.7 installed?
Can't it recognize a higher version?
I installed the developer default and the stupid thing won't even connect to mysql server?
Why???

How to repeat:
install mysql web client and choose developer default option

Do you have my exact same configuration?
Windows 10 Home
Python 3.7
Maybe you already have Python 3.6 installed so it's not complaining for you

What about my other question
Why is the default developer install failing for ODBC connector
and I'm not able to connect to mysql?

The machine is a Windows 10 Pro and never was installed Python 3.6 so the version 3.7 is the first only version installed.

Well it complained for me
Had you installed Python 3.7 before installing mysql?

Why is the default developer install failing for ODBC connector
and I'm not able to connect to mysql?
