I had this same error last week, and I have been pointed to that FAQ.

True that it's mentioned as a problem related to a bug in windows, but, 
I have just installed other RDBMS (Oracle and FireBirdSQL) on my 
machine, and they run quite fine.

My guess is that there should be a workaround so that the user won't 
have to experiment with this frustrating bug.
