MySQL Workbench not opening on Windows

I have downloaded the no-install portable version of Workbench. When I run the exe file (on Windows XP), nothing happens. Does it need some MySQL running? I think it’s standalone, right? I have XAMPP for MySQL. Any dependency etc?

Answer

You need to install the following in order to run the current version of MySQL Workbench:

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5.2
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2019 Redistributable for Visual Studio 2019
