Reply To: WordPress installation on windows-certain tables missing

The code causing the error should not have been encountered during installation. It’s as if wordpress doesn’t know it is in installation mode. Try adding this to wp-config.php:
define( ‘WP_INSTALLING’, true );

Get into the phpMyAdmin app and drop any tables that may have been created as part of your failed installation attempt. Proceed very carefully if this DB is used by any other apps. While here, double-check the privileges assigned to the DB user used by WordPress. The user must have at least all data and structure privileges. Note that it’s possible for DB-specific privileges to override global privileges. Be sure to check under both.

Attempt executing install.php again. If successful, remove the definition line from wp-config.php.
