Re: Installation of the Connector/C++ 8.0.13 in MySQL installer fails on Windows 7 32-bit
Unfortunately behaviour for 8.0.14 is the same (Connector/C++ did not install), I have updated MySQL 8.0.13 version.
For Windows 10 64-bit - Connector/C++ 8.0.14 installed succesfully and now I am using it.
If you need I can send you Virtual Box VM so you can investigate missed registry values. I think it takes me up to 13 hours (50 GB image unzipped).
I created my VM from Windows 7 professional SP1 image on my own DVD, I own 2 licenses and use them at home (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/15088/windows-10-create-installation-media, follow Windows 7 link). The MS updates servers are still available. Downloaded and installed MS SP KB3138612 to set new servers pathes in system (more explanation here https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-update/windows-7-update-solution/f39a65fa-9d10-42e7-9bc0-7f5096b36d0c?page=1
) and automatic update restored.
Visual Studio Community 2017, C++ sets up well after the Microsoft Net 4.6 installation ( https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=49978
Hope it will help Windows 7 users and programmers until MS closes Windows 7 support (without additional fee) next year.
