Installing MySQL 5.7.1 (Milestone Release) on Windows 7

I wanted install MySQL 5.7.1 (1st Milestone Release) on Windows 7 and test it out a bit, so I did, and since things didn’t go as smooth as expected, I thought I’d share my experience, in case anyone else runs into the same issues.

I downloaded the .msi (mysql-5.7.1-m11-winx64.msi) from (then click the “Developmental Releases” tab) and installed it following the prompts. That seemed to complete fine, which was great. However, that was it – and not in a good way. I mean, the “installer” basically only unpacked the files to a location.

Bye-bye .MSI (Hello MySQL Installer)

Windows users of MySQL may find something missing when they first download MySQL 5.6.6.  The .MSI package of MySQL for Windows has been eliminated in favor of the MySQL Installer for Windows.  You can still download MySQL in .ZIP format (as well as a source code .ZIP for the GPL-licensed Community edition), but the quickest way to get running MySQL on Windows is the MySQL Installer.  You can download the version of MySQL Installer that includes MySQL 5.6.6 on

The MySQL Installer has a number of improvements over the old .MSI installer and configuration wizard.  Running the 5.6.6 installer on my machine, it detected that ports 3306 and 3307 were already used by other MySQL installations, and suggested port 3308 for the new installation.  It also recognized conflicts with existing Windows service names, and suggests …
