MySQL Question

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 Net Framework 4.0 and Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)
in order to run MySql Workbench
