Was anyone able to install MySQL


1.  I downloaded the zip file for 64 bit and unziped it as per google drive instructions

2. Scond step is to "Double click at the extract file and click on install MySQL Product".  

Whihc extract file do I double click to start installing?

Dezyre also sent me this direct installer "https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/windows/installer/8.0.html" but it does not do anything after I select the products to install.

Pls let me know

I was able to istall it with the direct link after manually installing "Microsot Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Pacakge (x64)" first.

MySQL installer is trying to automatically resolve this requiremet. There is nothing you need to do
Microsot Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Pacakge (x64) is not installed
