endium, it seems that you are using MySQL and not MS SQL Server. Note that the current topic area is MSSQL, and that you should rather post your question in the MySQL dedicated topic area.

Anyway, check here:
: The answer is to install in c:\mysql (the default location) installing in c:\program files\mysql <...> seems to result in the error 1067 problem <...>

Thus, try to install mysql to C:\program files\mysql, and report if this helps
