Bug #50635 OS Language small problem - Server Administration

Status: Closed Impact on me:
Category:MySQL Workbench: Administration Severity:S3 (Non-critical)
Version:5.2.14 Beta OS:Windows (4990)
Assigned to: Alfredo Kojima CPU Architecture:Any
Tags: Server Administration - new Server Instance

[26 Jan 2010 19:10] Pedro Perea
When trying to create a new Server Instance, cannot found the my.ini file because the variable %Program files does not contain the right value for non-English Windows instalations (in this case "Archivos de Programa" instead of "Program Files").

How to repeat:
Install MySql and MySql Workbench in a non-english Windows machine, try to create a Server Instance.

Suggested fix:
Take present the OS language.

Hello Pedro,

these values are just template values for default installations and need to be adapted in most cases anyway. This is why you get to change this setting further down in the wizard in a separate step.

The following changes have been made to address this issue:
- 3 new templates for Windows have been added. They're intended to be used in 64 bit Windows machines running 32bit MySQL server.
- Paths containing %ProgramFiles% and %ProgramFiles(x86)% variables are expanded in the Administration module

This bug occurs in my English version of Windows, so I don't think it has anything to do with Windows is in English or not.

This bug still exists in the 5.2.15 Beta. Could you please specify the version in which this will be fixed?

The user interface is problematic. When I encountered this error, I thought I couldn't proceed. As I researched it, I found some other people who had the same reaction. Finally, someone pointed out that I could ignore this error and continue. This is not obvious. The error message should probably say "Warning", not "Error" and it should indicate that you can specify the exact location in a later step.
