I tried to change the default characterset of a schema to utf8mb4.  The Workbench software said the option is available.

I get Error 1115: Unknown character set utf8mb4.  I went to C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\share\charsets and noticed the character set is not installed.

Where to I get the files?

Hello Mel Nutter,

Thank you for the report.
This is repeatable only when connecting MySQL version < 5.5 and no issues for >- 5.5.x.
