Hello guys,
I have tried to configure ESMC with a Mysql database in a Windows environment, but even though I have correctly configured mysql 8.0 parameters it does not work. It shows me this error during installation:


You can see the my.ini file in the attachment.

I followed the instructions in this KB: https://help.eset.com/esmc_install/72/es-CL/mysql_windows.html#mysql_config.

These are the installed MySQL components:


Thanks for your help.

Hello guys,
I think I found the problem and it really is not technical, the problem is with the translation into Spanish from Latin America. Let me show you:

In the latin american user guide, you can see this instructions:


Highlighted in yellow you can see that it indicates that for Linux MySQL version 8, the parameter log_bin_trust_function_creators = 1 must be added or modified. But it is indicated only for Linux environments. In the English manual this option is not conditioned to Linux:


As I was working in a Windows environment, I chose not to make this modification, because the manual indicated that it should only be done in a Linux environment. Just to discard I decided to make the change and everything works correctly.

Thank you very much for your collaboration and if you can please change the manual (Latin America Spanish) in this section as it may cause confusion.
