I disabled the network connection in MySQL Administrator, so that only named pipe connection could be done. But still, when using the Tools menu in Administrator, and selecting the Query Browser, it says that is unable to connect using localhost:3306.

How to repeat:
1. Disable network connection in MySQL Administrator
2. Enable named pipe in mySQL Administrator
3. Save
4. Restart mySQL
5. Connect either to MySQL Administrator or MySQL Query Browser
6. Go to "Tools > MySQL Query Browser" or "Tools > MySQL Administrator"
7. See the error popup

Suggested fix:
Support named pipe when opening mySQL Query Browser or mySQL Administrator for the tools menu of both application.

Thank you for the bug report.

I edited the my.ini file with enable-named-pipe and skip-networking. Then try to connect with MySQL Query Browser and I got the can`t connect error message (see prior attached picture). Closing the message box QB connects with the server and displays the databases Catalog, however any query against a table gives an error: MySQL server goes away and when closing the application QB crashes.

Many thanks for writing a bug report. We are on the way to implement full functionality of
MySQL GUI tools into MySQL Workbench. We won't fix this anymore.
