If you have a mysqldump from a working instance of your db, can you not download and install MySQL 5.7, then import the 5.6 dump and run mysql_upgrade?

If not, then since the problem you're having evidently wasn't a general problem with MySQL installations on Windows, have you tried installing 5.6 on a version of Windows other than Windows Server 2012 R2 ?

Failing both the above, have you tried skipping the auto-configuration step and instead manually configuring MySQL?

Or installing from a zip ?
