Hello DEV,

The link you provide will take you to the latest available version of MySQL Installer along with the latest server version (8.0.23), however you mention version 5.7.21 on your message. Is it possible you executed an older version of the msi that you had previously downloaded? Latest 5.7 version is actually 5.7.33 and can be downloaded by additionally clicking the "Looking for previous GA versions?" link.

I advise you download the installer again and attempt to execute it once more. The msi name should have 8.0.23 or 5.7.33 in its name. If you continue to see the same behavior (it takes more than 5 minutes to complete installation), something that might work is to execute the msi as an administrator from the start.
