I registered a server at the MySQL Workbench.

Using this connection for "SQL Development" is working.

When I try to manage the instance with "Server Administration" en exception appears after MySQL Workbench asks me to select the instance to manage.

Here is the exception:

Exception = System.Runtime.InteropServices.SEHException
Message = External component has thrown an exception.
FullText = System.Runtime.InteropServices.SEHException: External component has thrown an exception.
   at MySQL.Forms.DrawBoxImpl.drawbox_mouse_click(Object sender, MouseEventArgs e)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.OnMouseClick(MouseEventArgs e)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmMouseUp(Message& m, MouseButtons button, Int32 clicks)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.OnMessage(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.Control.ControlNativeWindow.WndProc(Message& m)
   at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam)

How to repeat:
The exception appears everytime I try to connect to a server instance to manage it.
After the exception appears the process terminates so that I'm not able to manage a server instance using MySQL Workbench

Thank you for the bug report. Are you trying to connect to a local server or remote server?. Thanks in advance.

Sorry for missing this part.

The MySQL instance is on a different host. The other host is in the same LAN and the connection to it is 1GE.
I am using the FQDN of the machine to connect to it instead of the IP-Address only.

The network configuration (my client, the computer with the MySQL server instance and the network services) should be fine, because in parallel to trying the Workbench I am using the MySQL Administrator to connect from my machine to the other MySQL instance. This is working fine.

What exact version of MySQL server, x.y.z, are you trying to work with?

I'm using MySQL 5.1.42 community. I try to connect via TCP/IP
