Mysql on Windows 8 Pro stops with basic use...

Installation goes fine, only mysql is being installed within a 
subdirectoy, witch is different from what I entered at the beginning
of the installation. 

With workbench 5.2.47

I also added the bin folder to the windows "PATH" string, to make sure
all binarie files can be found. 

the problems start with adding a new user. The Service just stops
and connection is lost to mysql. When I stat the servive again and
try again, I'm getting the same. 

I also installed Mysql 5.5.29 with workbench 5.2.45. 
This one works perfectly, no problems with adding a new user.

How to repeat:
- install Mysql on windows 8 pro (with all updates installed)
- Try to add new user
- create database and read/write to/from it. 

Suggested fix:
