Issues upgrading MySQL due to env variable

I am having issues upgrading MySQL running on Windows, using the ZIP installer. I am attempting to upgrade from MySQL v5.6.37 to v5.7.24. There is an older version of MySQL, v5.5.9, still installed on the server. Only the 5.6 service is running on the server.

When I run the mysql_upgrade command, I get the following output:


Looking for 'mysql.exe' as: C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\bin\mysql.exe

Looking for 'mysqlcheck.exe' as: C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\bin\mysqlcheck.exe

The upgrade eventually errors out. Running mysql --version from the command promot returns
mysql Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.5.9, for Win64 (x86)

Somewhere there's an environment variable that is set to point to v5.5.9. I've checked CLASSPATH, which isn't configured, and PATH, which doesn't point to any of the MySQL installs.
Where should I be looking for this environment variable? And how can I change it?
