After changing log-output=TABLE in my.ini and enabling the general log, I receive the following error in MySQL Workbench when clicking Server Logs in Navigator:

Error-  An unhandled exception occurred ('NoneType' object has no attribute 'path'). Please refer to the log files for details.

I have tried every combination I can think of for setting the global variables in my.ini or via session, and I get this error no matter what I do. I am running MySQL Server Community Edition 5.6.34. Can you please advise what could be causing this and how to resolve?

How to repeat:
There are several ways to repeat this but here is one:

Shut down MySQL Server Service
Change my.ini

# General and Slow logging.

Start up mysql server service
Click server logs
Will get the above referenced error
