The procedure for launching MySQL Workbench depends on the platform. Generally, there are two ways to launch MySQL Workbench from the command line and from the graphical user interface of the host operating system. Using the command-line launching facility is useful when you want to customize some aspects of the way MySQL Workbench operates. Launching MySQL Workbench for each of the supported platforms is described in the following sections.

In addition to platform-specific command line options, MySQL Workbench has the following command line options:

  • --admin instance - Launch MySQL Workbench and load the server instance specified.

  • --query connection - Launch MySQL Workbench and load the connection specified.

  • --model modelfile - Launch MySQL Workbench and load the model specified.

  • --script script - Launch MySQL Workbench and run the script specified.

  • --run code - Launch MySQL Workbench and run the code snippet specified.

  • --quit-when-done - quits MySQL Workbench after --script or --run finishes.

MySQL Workbench may be installed using the Windows installer file or it may be installed manually from a ZIP file.

Installing MySQL Workbench Using the Installer

MySQL Workbench can be installed using the Windows Installer (.msi) installation package. The MSI package bears the name mysql-workbench-version-win32.msi, where version indicates the MySQL Workbench version number.

Installing MySQL Workbench using the installer requires either Administrator or Power User privileges. If you are using the ZIP file without an installer, you do not need Administrator or Power User privileges.

Improving the MySQL Installation Wizard depends on the support and feedback of users. If you find that the MySQL Installation Wizard is lacking some feature important to you, or if you discover a bug, please report it in our bugs database. To do this use the Report a Bug option under the Help menu.

  1. To install MySQL Workbench, right-click the MSI file and select the Install option from the pop-up menu, or simply double-click the file.

  2. In the Setup Type window you may choose a Complete or Custom installation. To use all features of MySQL Workbench choose the Complete option.

  3. Unless you choose otherwise, MySQL Workbench is installed in C:%PROGRAMFILES%MySQLMySQL Workbench 5.1 edition_type, where %PROGRAMFILES% is the default directory for programs for your locale. The %PROGRAMFILES% directory may be C:Program Files or C:programme.

Installing from the ZIP File

If you are having problems running the installer, as an alternative, you can download a ZIP file without an installer. That file is called mysql-workbench-version-win32.zip. Using a ZIP utility, unpack it to the directory of your choice. You may also want to create a shortcut on your desktop or the quick launch bar.

To install using the ZIP file, download the ZIP file to a convenient location and decompress the file. You can place the resulting directory anywhere on you system. You do not need to install or configure the application before using it.

To start MySQL Workbench on Windows select Start, Programs, MySQL and then select MySQL Workbench.

You may also start MySQL Workbench from the command line. To view the available command-line options, issue the command MySQLWorkbench -help more from the MySQL Workbench installation directory. You will see the following output:

The MySQL Workbench version number is displayed followed by a usage message and then the options. Use the -swrendering option if your video card does not support OpenGL 1.5. The -version option can be used to display the MySQL Workbench version number. The -grtversion can be used to display the GRT shell version number. The other options are self-explanatory.

When using command-line options that display output to a console window, namely -help and -version, be sure that you pipe the output through the more command otherwise nothing will be displayed.

The method for uninstalling MySQL Workbench will depend on how you install MySQL Workbench in the first place.

Rmoving MySQL Workbench when installed Using the Installer

  1. To uninstall MySQL Workbench, open the Control Panel and Choose Add or Remove Programs. Find the MySQL Workbench entry and choose the button. Doing this will remove MySQL Workbench.

  2. Any modules added to the C:Program FilesMySQLMySQL Workbench versionmodules directory will not be deleted.

It is not possible to remove MySQL Workbench from the command line if you have installed MySQL Workbench using the installer. Although you can manually remove some of the compoentns There is no command-line option for removing MySQL Workbench.

Removing the MySQL Workbench directory manually will not remove all the files belonging to MySQL Workbench.

When installed from a ZIP file

If you installed MySQL Workbench using a ZIP file, to remove MySQL Workbench you can just delete the MySQL Workbench directory.

If you installed any additional modules within the modules directory and you want to keep them, make sure you copy those modules to a different directory before deleting the MySQL Workbench directory.

EOL of MySQL Query Browser, MySQL Administrator, MySQL Migration Toolkit

With the beta releases of MySQL Workbench 5.2 well under way, we are announcing the EOL of the MySQL GUI Tools Bundle.

The MySQL Tools team has been working on MySQL Workbench 5.2 to give DBAs and developers an integrated tools environment for:

  • Database Design & Modeling
  • SQL Development (replacing MySQL Query Browser)
  • Database Administration (replacing MySQL Administrator)

MySQL Workbench 5.2 also provides:

  • Remote Administration (using SSH-Tunneling)
  • Python scripting and plugins
  • Native GUI for Windows, Mac, Linux

A future release of MySQL Workbench (post 5.2) will add a migration plugin, providing features comparable to the MySQL Migration Toolkit component of the MySQL GUI Tools Bundle. The MySQL Support team will continue to provide technical assistance for MySQL Migration Toolkit until such migration support functionality is released in MySQL Workbench, but no new development or bug fixes will be provided against the existing MySQL Migration Toolkit product.

MySQL Support will continue to answer questions and provide assistance related to MySQL GUI Tools Bundle, as well as assist our customers in upgrading from those tools to MySQL Workbench 5.2 until June 30, 2010.

Starting Dec 18, 2009, MySQL will no longer accept bug reports submitted against the MySQL GUI Tools Bundle, and existing bug reports against these tools will no longer be worked on. Users should instead download, use, and submit bug reports (where necessary) against MySQL Workbench. Downloads of the MySQL GUI Tools Bundle will remain available, but will be moved into the MySQL Archives location.

Users should begin planning to upgrade to MySQL Workbench 5.2 GA.
