Based on the error log there could be two root causes.
1. Remove the current instance and try selecting the non-transactional database configuration for the new instance. I believe this does not use the InnoDB plugin. This should remove the first error "Plugin 'InnoDB' init function returned error. Plugin 'InnoDB' registration as a STORAGE ENGINE failed."

2. open command prompt and type 'netstat -a | find "3306"' (without single quotes). If you get an output then the default port for MySql is currently being used by some other application. You have to choose a different port and reconfigrue the instance. This should eliminate the second error " Can't start server: Bind on TCP/IP port: Address already in use"
