Description:
Hello,

When I try to configure MySQL during the last operation of the installation, the "updating Start Menu Link" failed.
I am running the last installer of the official website. I searched in different forums but solutions don't work. 

Here is the log from the installer :

Thank you for the bug report. I couldn't repeat the issue reported (tried 5 times to install).

And what can I do to install mySQL ? Do I have to try with an earlier version ?

Maybe related to your issue: https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=93048 you could wait to be fixed or if you are in a hurry use the manual install zipped package (read carefully the manual instructions about i.e. creating the initial data stuff mysqld.exe --initialize (initialize-insecure), creating the service, ect.).
