Issue when installing locally on Windows 10

The MSI installer ask if we want to install MonboDB as a service. Then, doesn’t matter what value are entered it always end the following error message :

The domain, user name and/or password are incorrect. Remember to use “.” for the domain if the account is on the local machine.

it seems also described here :

And here :

Please try your Windows username/password

It works but I don’t get why I should give those sensitive data to MongoDB and why other DBMS such as MySQL doesn’t need it to install :confused:
