Since I couldn't install MySQL Workbench from the preferred method, (Bug #81728),
I attempted to install it from mysql-workbench-community-6.3.7-winx64.msi
(Windows (x86, 64-bit), MSI Installer 6.3.7).

The resulting installation consistently reports:
python.exe - System Error
The program can't start because MSVCR120.dll is missing from your computer.
Try reinstalling this program to fix this problem.

Also see:

Workaround: I was able to successfully install from 
(Windows (x86, 32-bit), MSI Installer 6.3.7).

Thank you.

How to repeat:
Go to http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/workbench/ and, under "Other Downloads",
select, download and install from mysql-workbench-community-6.3.7-winx64.msi
(Windows (x86, 64-bit), MSI Installer 6.3.7).

Suggested fix:
Perhaps you might consider, (if it's legal to do so), including MSVCR120.dll 
and other associated DLL's with the package.

Please check if you performed the WorkBench Prerequisites as mentioned in the download page: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/workbench/. I was able to install the 64-bit version.

No, I did not explicitly check prerequisites, but considering that the 
32-bit version installed and ran perfectly, I assume that I must have them.

I didn't really *need* a 64-bit version of the client; I had just assumed 
it was "better".  If you want to close this ticket, I understand.
