Issues during MySQL Installation

Issues occurred during the installation process of MySQL 8.0.16 on a Windows system using MySQL Installer.

The main issue I got during the installation process of MySQL 8.0.16 is the missing the missing "Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable" package.

If you see any additional packages are needed on the "Check Requirements", you need to click the "Execute" button to install those additional packages first, before clicking the "Next" button. If you click the "Next" button directly, any impacted MySQL applications will not be installed.

1. Double-click on \temp\mysql-installer-community- to start installation.

2. Follow instructions given by the installer and select "Full" on the "Choosing a Setup Type" screen.

3. Continue to the "Check Requirements" screen. You see the very first requirement is that "MySQL Server 8.0.16" requires "Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable" package.

4. Click on the first requirement. You see the requirement detail that says "MySQL Installer is trying to automatically resolve this requirement. There is nothing you need to do."

5. Click ""Execute" button, the installer will automatically start installing required packages, including "Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable".

6. If you see any required package in labeled as "Manual", you need to install it by yourself first.

7. Click "Next", after required packages are installed, and follow the instruction to finish.
