Also, when using the cmd prompt I get this:

Unhandled Exception: System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write  protected memory. This is often an indication that other memory is corrupt.

How to repeat:
Install MySQL Workbench. Start MySql Workbench

The install was a fresh install or upgrade?. Are you tried to re-install too?. Thanks in advance.

Brand new install

Required .Net framework 4.0 and Visual Studio C++ Redistributable to be installed

Have tried reinstalling MySQL WB only, and all three with reboots inbetween.

Can you try to start it from cmd.exe command line window with -swrendering option. I wonder if this will make any difference.

You mean this?:

C:\Users\N5110>"C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Workbench 5.2 CE\MySQLWorkben
ch.exe" -swrendering

Same result - crash.

Still not working despite carrying out all the actions indicated.

Can you post a link to an earlier version of WB (which used to work on my computer)?

You can find older versions on the mirrors, like this:

Hi - thanks for link. Version 5.2.30 works. Anything after this crashes on start up.

Sounds like something related to nvidia drivers. Have you tried updating video drivers?
