Installing MySQL on a Microsoft computer and not having Visual 1.2.3 requirement RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been trying to install MySQL onto my computer. In the process of installation I come to a screen that has certain program and connector requirements to be able to move forward with the installation.  One of these programs is Visual Studio 1.2.3.  The screen is requiring me to manually install visual studio 1.2.3 and has a button that checks the system for the Visual Studio installation. I have searched and attempted to install Visual Studio 1.2.3 but have not had any progress in the system recognizing Visual Studio on the computer, thus I remain stuck at the screen that says Visual studio 1.2.3 is a requirement to install MySQL.  I can provide a picture of the screen so that you can see where my issue is if that is more helpful.  How can I get Visual Studio 1.2.3 on my computer that will allow me to finish my MySQL installation?

  • Hi artondavis,

    Since this issue was related to the third party product MySQL, you know that actually it has his own supported site here:


    So if possible, you could start a discussion in the MySQL forum, I think you could get dedicated support there.

    In addition, a document also shared some information about it:
