When I try to connect a server to execute an sql query, either localhost or server I get the window telling me that workbench is about to open the sql editor, but it never does. Also the "Connecting..." message appears at the bottom of the workbench.

How to repeat:
1. Install MySQL Workbench 5.2.41 on Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
2. Click on "Open Connection to Start Querying"
3. Try to connect to a valid local MySQL server (I have not tried connecting to an external server - I don't have one to test).
4. The SQL Editor will not open.

This is pretty much identical to this closed issue, but I created a new bug report since that one was closed: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=61560

Thank you for the bug report. Delete and create new connection sometimes works until the next application start.

I already opened a new bug as I guesses this was dead.
My open report is here:

5.2.42 is working for me.

5.2.42 Fixes this bug. Developers, thank you for your time and effort on this, I know it's a thankless job.

Closing report.

I'm running 5.6.28 and it's doing it to me..

I got it un-stuck this time, I think it was my debugger, or the web server with a connection to it. As soon as I stopped the debugger from my PHP web application (which should have also ended the php.exe) (using Visual Studio 2015 with PHPTools), it opened. I don't know if it's actually the debugger, or the IIS Express web server instance that is running my PHP program, or the php.exe that was running it.

Is there no command I can run that would say "Waiting for Dan to close the debugger.."? hehe
