Can't run MySQL Server 5.7

Hello,

For school I have to install MySQL on my laptop.
I downloaded the community installer (mysql-installer-community-5.7.20.0.msi) and tried to install the whole package.
However in the last step it gets stuck at "starting server".
I found a lot of topic on the issue, but can't get it to work.
I found one topic with a workaround for MySQL Server 5.5, but that doesn't work for 5.7.
What I did for now is:
1. Re-installed the complete package after uninstalling and deleting the "ProgramData" directory --> failed
2. When installer hangs at "starting server", I did the following steps (works on v5.5):
- Added these lines to "my.ini"
#*** INNODB Specific options ***
innodb_buffer_pool_size = 256M
innodb_log_file_size = 256M
innodb_thread_concurrency = 16
innodb_flush_log_at_trx_commit = 2
innodb_flush_method = normal
- Deleted:
DESKTOP-K1N1S7A.err
ib_logfile0
ib_logfile1
ibdata1
- Changed MySQL57 service to "Log on as: Local System Account". Start service manually, but it stops within a couple of seconds.

This doens't work on version 5.7.
I'm not a specialist, but does anyone knows another workaround to get the server starting?

Thank you
