I installed latest version of MySql Workbench version Any try to use export from teh workbench, reagardless of project folder or self-contained file, ended with the Error message: mysqldump: unknown option '--no-beep'. 

I tried to call mysqldump directly from command line w/o any options and get the same error. I searched all mysql folders whether there may be an config or ini file providing the option '--no-beep' to mysqldump but found nothing. The error arise with mysqldump in the workbench folder and in the servers bin folder. I also tried to download the latest server version and extract and use mysqldump from that version, but got the same error. 

Any suggestions what I can do? May bee there somthing hiding in the registration from older MySQL versions?

How to repeat:
Just type mysqldump on command line and execute. Same behavior on my laptop with Windows 8.1

Please check on your my.ini file if that option exists and comment it. Test again. Thanks.

In some environment, my.ini made by MySQL Installer contains entry like this.

# Other default tuning values
# MySQL Server Instance Configuration File
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------
# Generated by the MySQL Server Instance Configuration Wizard
# The following options will be read by MySQL client applications.
# Note that only client applications shipped by MySQL are guaranteed
# to read this section. If you want your own MySQL client program to
# honor these values, you need to specify it as an option during the
# MySQL client library initialization.

It's harm to utilities don't support 'no-beep' like mysqldump.

It should be omitted or modify like this.
