Installer test

I have just one question: Does anyone test the installers at all? I'm trying to use the Microsoft Web based installer and I'm encountering several problems. First of all the downloads are failing and I have to press several times the retry button. Maybe you should consider downloading packages on less threads if the server cannot handle all ~10 download threads at the same time.
Then the uninstall procedure doesn't seem to cleanup correctly the folders and on the next install I got a warning about the fact that destination folders already exists.
Then, at some final step I had to fill in the root password and I pressed the "check" button. The UI hanged forever (because the functionality is probably executed on main UI thread). I had to terminate the process and of course I ended up with a corrupt installation.
Right now I'm trying for the 5th time to install and I think the MySQL80 Windows service cannot be installed anymore (for whatever reason).
