Hi, I got a new laptop, added the connections from my old laptop with the same values, tested the connections, positive. The SQL editor won't open, the splash screen shows for a 1/10 of a second, no error message. Nothing wrong with the databases since the editor stills opens on my old laptop. Tried version 8.0.27 on my new laptop (old laptop has version 8.0.27), same problem. New laptop has the latest intel core i9 12th-gen cpu, 32GB RAM. Run Windows 11. Old laptop: Windows 10.

Thank you for the bug report.
To investigate further this issue at our end, may I kindly request you to launch workbench under debug mode (--log-level=debug3) and provide unaltered workbench log file(more details about log are explained here - https://dev.mysql.com/doc/workbench/en/workbench-reporting-bugs.html)?

Thank you for the details.
Looking at the log file attached, we found that
Unsupported server version: (Ubuntu) 5.5.41-0ubuntu0.14.04.1
Please try on supported platform. For more info https://www.mysql.com/support/supportedplatforms/database.html

I can not simply "try on supported platform". These are multiple live databases for our clients. It is weird though that this is not a problem on a windows 10 machine. Meanwhile I found a good alternative on my windows 11 machine, Navicat for MySQL.

Kind regards.
