After a dozen or so reinstalls, I think I've hit the key items:

1) Fully uninstall MySQL.
2) Delete the hidden mysql data directory in the hidden C:\ProgramData directory.
3) Delete any other mysql directories in C:\Progam Files and/or C:\Program Files (x86)
4) Before running the installer, or at least the configuration wizard, go into Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Change User Account Control settings and turn them off. (Be sure you're running the installer as a user with admin privileges).
4) Run installer and configuration wizard.
5) Take note of the port setting that the installer assigns to MySQL. Other apps will assume it is 3306. Yours may not be.

Hope this helps.
