First forget the error message it'S always the same.
I think you are cought by a little bug in 3.22.21.
Don't know if it is fixed in 3.22.22 (will try this later).
The workaround is:
Create a text file "C:\my.cnf" (this is the mysql configuration file).
Add these two lines:
Then install and start mysql again.
