Hi all

I've used mysql-installer-5.5.29.0.msi to install MySQL 5.5.29 and it messed up in a strange way - MySQL Server 5.5 ended up in directory: "C:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint EX".

After snooping around for a while, I googled 'mysql "C:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint EX"' - I found that others have had the same experience. These links descibes the issue:
http://forums.mysql.com/read.php?11,432881
http://www.codeproject.com/Questions/409597/Installing-MySQL-5-5

So, I did the following:
1) reboot
2) uninstall
3) reboot again
4) checked that C:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint EX was clean (no mysql)
5) made sure my my registry was clean using 'regedit'
6) made sure that C:\User\<MyAccount>\AppData didn't contain any temporary ini-data referring to "C:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint EX"
7) searched for ini-files with references in C:\Program Files\MySQL (found nothing)
8) searched for ini-files with references in C:\ProgramData\MySQL (found nothing)
9) reboot
10) Reinstall with extra caution, I chose "Custom installation" with explicit references:
Base directory = C:\Dev\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\
Data directory = C:\Dev\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\data

11) MySQL Server 5.5 once again ended up in directory: "C:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint EX".
The install-log showed that everything worked well until line 851, where my-template.ini apparently was given the value "C:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint EX" (my best guess, I really don't know what that logline means) - from then on it continued installing into the wrong directory:

:
1: File: events_waits_history_long.frm, Directory: C:\Dev\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\data\performance_schema\, Size: 9220
1: File: events_waits_summary_by_instance.frm, Directory: C:\Dev\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\data\performance_schema\, Size: 8878
1: File: events_waits_summary_by_thread_by_event_name.frm, Directory: C:\Dev\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\data\performance_schema\, Size: 8854
1: File: events_waits_summary_global_by_event_name.frm, Directory: C:\Dev\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\data\performance_schema\, Size: 8814
1: File: my-template.ini, Directory: C:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint EX\, Size: 13128
1: File: MySQLInstanceConfig.exe, Directory: C:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint EX\bin\, Size: 2973600
1: File: my_print_defaults.exe, Directory: C:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint EX\bin\, Size: 3462144
1: File: myisam_ftdump.exe, Directory: C:\Program Files\Canon\Easy-WebPrint EX\bin\, Size: 3743744
:

In C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Installer\my-template.ini I found empty parameters (including basedir and datadir),

12) reboot
13) Uninstall cleaned up nicely (again) - it seems that the msi-installer is consistent and the error is reproducable!


Any ideas?

Thanks and best regards
Janick
