Hi, Chris and David,

I just had the same error message with MySQL 5.6.20 on Windows when an earlier installation worked fine using 5.6.19. I uninstalled MySQL, rolled back to 5.6.19, and setup-database.bat succeeded.

Yes, every time. I've dropped and recreated the db about four times. Get the same error each time. 


	1) What version of java are you using?

$ java -version

	2) how much memory do you have one the server

	3) what does you my.cnf look like? ( probably in /etc/my.cnf ) 


cat /etc/my.cnf
# For advice on how to change settings please see # http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/server-configuration-defaults.html

# Remove leading # and set to the amount of RAM for the most important data # cache in MySQL. Start at 70% of total RAM for dedicated server, else 10%.
# innodb_buffer_pool_size = 128M
# Remove leading # to turn on a very important data integrity option: logging # changes to the binary log between backups.
# log_bin
# Remove leading # to set options mainly useful for reporting servers.
# The server defaults are faster for transactions and fast SELECTs.
# Adjust sizes as needed, experiment to find the optimal values.
# join_buffer_size = 128M
# sort_buffer_size = 2M
# read_rnd_buffer_size = 2M

# Disabling symbolic-links is recommended to prevent assorted security risks

# Recommended in standard MySQL setup
