Hallelujah! I found a work around. When the "configuration" hit the point of trying to start the server, I opened the Services application (you can use the Run command and type in services.msc, or open Control Panel, then Administrative Tools, then Services) and then found the MySQL service ("MySQL80" in my case) and then right clicked on it, selected Properties, then went to the Log On tab, and then checked "Local System account". After hitting Apply and OK until I got back to the services list, I right clicked on the MySQL service again and clicked "Start". At that point the "configuration" happily continued and finished with no errors.

So I got it installed! And then began the nightmare of getting the MySQL server started again after I shut it down, AND getting Workbench somewhat functional. To get the server to start again, I had to copy the entire "data" folder with all of it's contents from C:\ProgramData\MySQL\MySQL Server 8.0\ to C:\PROGRAM FILES\MySQL\MySQL Server 8.0\

At this point I'm VERY UNIMPRESSED by MySQL and even more so with Oracle. How can a company that big and that profitable create such CRAP software??? I thought Microsoft products had issues but MS SQL is an absolute dream to work with compared to this.
