I'm installing MySQL 5.6 on Windows 8. I'm doing a completely generic install--I accept all defaults. Yet I get this error:
Beginning configuration step: Applying security settings Attempting to update security settings. Authentication to host 'localhost' for user 'root' using method 'mysql_native_password' failed with message: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO) Ended configuration step: Applying security settings
This happens when running the MSI file found right on the MySQL download site.
I am an Administrator on the machine.
What am I missing?
