Install doesn't accept current root password

I had installed Server 8.0 and uninstalled all parts of MySQL to reset the root password.

Using Windows 10 file: mysql-installer-web-community-

In the form "Accounts and Roles" it prompts for Current Root Password.
As mentioned, I was hoping to set a new password!
I entered the password I had just used in a sqldump command earlier today.
But it shows an X indicating a mismatch.
Hover on the X: "Could not connect to MySQL, the service is possibly down or the host is unreachable."
Why is it trying to connect when the software has not been installed yet? There is no MySQL service, so obviously it's down.
How do I resolve this?
