Description:
In this bug, the developper explain about OFFLINE upgrade procedure with MySQL Installer.

https://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=72176

- install the update msi and close the GUI
- open a windows console window (under administrative privileges)
- navigate to the mysql installer directory (usually found under %ProgramFiles%\MySQL\MySQL Installer)
- execute the following command:
  MySQLInstallerConsole.exe --action=upgrade

But the manual don't have any description for these procedure. So please add a description for that, and need update for MySQL Installer with MySQL 5.7, 8.0.

How to repeat:
See Description, and How to fix.

Suggested fix:
So please add a description for that, and need update for MySQL Installer with MySQL 5.7, 8.0.

For example, In this version of MySQL Installer, did the same procedure, returned "--action=upgrade is not a support action" and MySQL Client menu became don't work.

Before update:MySQL Server 5.7.18.1
After update:MySQL Server 5.7.19 

After that procedure, we have to change path of MySQL Client menu's property as belows. (Need to change path from "Program Files" to "ProgramData"

"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\bin\mysql.exe" "--defaults-file=C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\my.ini" "-uroot" "-p"
↓
"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\bin\mysql.exe" "--defaults-file=C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.7\my.ini" "-uroot" "-p"

Need to update the procedure for MySQL 5.7 and 8.0.
