Tableau Desktop Stuck Installing mySQL connector on Windows 7

Since I quit the Mac and moved to Ubuntu. I realized that Tableau doesn’t run on Linux.

I got a Windows 7 virtual machine.

I downloaded the installer from the Tableau website. It got stuck half way when trying to install the mySQL connector.

I ended the process from the task manager.

I went to this website to download the mySQL connector.

I chose for Platform “Windows”. And downloaded “Windows (x86, 64-bit), MSI Installer”.

I restarted.

Then installed the connector.

Then installed Tableau.
