I am facing problem of connecting to Mysql Server 8.0.15 even though I have upgraded everything from 8.0.13 to 8.0.14 and to 8.015. Furthermore, I have deleted, using Administrator's right all the server folder inside C:\ProgramData\MySQL and now only left with the copy of 8.0.15.

So, I am stumped that when I run my usual connectivity to MySQL 8.0.15 server using MySQL workbench, the console is showing server 8.0.14.

In addition, I have also removed the services in Windows 10 by using sc delete MySQLserviceName.
