How to specify xampp mysql port number during bitnami wordpress installation?

I have installed xampp and I changed the mysql port number from 3306 to 3307 ( as 3306 is blocked for other application). Both apache and mysql are running when I press start. By the way, I am using Windows

When I try to install bitnami wordpress module, the installer is not able to find mysql as the installer is looking for it on port number 3306 instead of 3307. I have checked the bitrock_installer.log and found out that it is indeed looking for mysql on port numner 3306.

Log started 05/01/2017 at 14:36:22 Preferred installation mode : qt Trying to init installer in mode qt Mode qt successfully initialized Tried to find file "properties.ini" inside non-existent directory "C:Bitnami" Executing C:/xamppmysqlbin/mysql.exe -u root -P3306
-hlocalhost -e "show databases;" Script exit code: 1

Script output:  

Script stderr:  ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

Error running C:/xamppmysqlbin/mysql.exe -u root -P3306 -hlocalhost
-e "show databases;": ERROR 1045 (28000): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)

Is there a way to specify the mysql port number during bitnami wordpress installation, so that it looks for mysql on port number 3307 instead of 3306 ? Thank you.
