MySQL server for Windows installation failed with rollback

When I first tried out MySQL Server 8.0.17 last year on my Lenovo ThinkPad T480, all components installed properly and I thought nothing of it. Now I'm trying to install on another laptop ThinkPad L490 and all components can install except the server itself.

Last entries of the install log show

The same if attempting to install server 5.7, or with web installer.

Went back to my ThinkPad T480 completely uninstalled 8.0.17 (although the Windows service wasn't removed) and installed 8.0.20 without error.

Reading around, this apparently has been an old problem since at least ver 5.6 days? The log entries don't quite explain exactly what went wrong. Any clues on the background processes that influence this?
