I installed Workbench using the MSI downloaded from the web site.  When invoked, Workbench exits with error message upon initialization and before splash screen appears.

Error summary:

Application: MySQLWorkbench.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.TypeInitializationException
   at MySQL.GUI.Workbench.Program.Main(System.String[])

See also, Bug #60115 for a similar event on Windows 7.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Workaround:  This occurred when Workbench was installed using the MSI.  I uninstalled the tool, downloaded the zipped version and manually started it from the extracted folder.  The tool works when invoked this way.

Could you try the test MSI binaries for 5.2.35 at http://wb.mysql.com/?p=1140
and report if they work?
