MySQL Installer

The web (which means downloading packages on demand) installer of MySQL on Windows in broken. (mysql-installer-web-community-5.7.18.1.msi)

See https://www.reddit.com/r/mysql/comments/35uh7n/installation_problems/

The solution is to download the whole package. (mysql-installer-community-5.7.18.1.msi)
(Why? Just because…)

World of Open Source, 2017.

The full installer won’t let me to pick “developer package”, I have to click through the installer UI, which is a beast, in a bad way… You have to open the trees on the UI, click on the arrow (as far as I was able to play with it, no means to add all packages under a node, or double click the package instead of clicking on the arrow…)
