Installation->Configuration error: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'

Hello,

I am installing mysql-installer-5.5.14.1 for MySql development. When the installer comes to the point of configuration it gives me the following error:

mysql-server-5.5-win32-gpl:100 - Unable to update security settings. Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

I tried to leave "Current Root Password" blank and I still get that error.

How can I fix that problem?
Thank you.
