A clean installation have been tried for "mysql-installer-community-" installation on windows server 2012 R2... but it is failing at configuration step as "Insitialising database failed"

How to repeat:
download the latest MySQL installer "mysql-installer-community-" & start installing

Hello Deepthi,

We're sorry, but the bug system is not the appropriate forum for asking help on using MySQL products. Your problem is not the result of a bug.

For details on getting support for MySQL products see http://www.mysql.com/support/

I tried to reproduce on 2 separate boxes(Windows 2012 R2 - first with fresh installation and another upgrade from 8.0.11 to 8.0.19 using mysql-installer-community- but not seeing any issues. 

Thank you for your interest in MySQL.
