mysql-installer-community- installed correctly and afterwards it installed server 5.7 correctlyl as well. However, after I removed the server from the installer itself, when I tried to reinstall server, the only option was for version 8.0. 

First time, version 5.7 was installed (of course).

How to repeat:
Just use mysql-installer for windows.

Hello  Kostas,

Thank you for the bug report.
It seems to me that still you  have MySQL server on your system, If you want to re-install, please uninstall first from control panel then attempt to re-install it.

The "Installer" is supposed to handle uninstallation without user interacting with Control Panel .. add/remove programs

I think rather the system should be rebooted after uninstalling a server from the "Installer".  As far as I remember the Installer prompts for this (though I don't understand why it should be necessary).

No cpanel is involved. The installer itself has the remove component option.

Hello Kostas,

Thank you for the feedback.
I could not repeat the issue at our end using with MySQL 5.7.22 version on Windows 10.
If you can provide more information, feel free to add it to this bug and change the status back to 'Open'.

Thank you for your interest in MySQL.
