  • For your own protection

    If you're running the installer on Windows 8, a screen-width message bar will pop up, making it look as if Windows is preventing the installation.  The solution is easy, though counterintuitive: clik the More Info link, highlighted here.

  • Run anyway

    The More Info screen is actually where the needed manual override option is placed.  Click the "Run anyway" button.

  • Let 'er rip!

    Now the Welcome screen of the installation wizard should appear.  Click the "Next" button to proceed.

  • How Do You Keep It All Up-To-Date?

    Having to run a separate GUI installer for every single package sounds like a scalability nightmare. Including your DBMS, Web server, load balancer, memory cache, scripting languages, scripting language add-ons, Web server add-ons, library dependencies ... that could easily mount up to hundreds of separate installers, which means hundreds of separate updates needing to be managed. On a Linux system, keeping it all-to-date involves little more than typing "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade".
