Description:
Hi, I downloaded and installed mysql-workbench-community-6.0.8-win32.msi for the first time on Windows 7 64bit machine. I don't have any prior version of Workbench. At the end of installation or when I try to open Workbench from Start menu or from command line, I get a dialog box that the program has crashed.

I renamed this folder multiple times but issue remains

How to repeat:

I also tried the noinstall(zip) versions 5.2.47 and 6.1.1 (beta) noinstall (zip),
and on running MySQLWorkbench.exe they all crash with windows event:

Application: MySQLWorkbench.exe
Framework Version: v4.0.30319
Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.
Exception Info: System.NullReferenceException
Stack:
