Description:
Uninstalling MySQL Workbench 6.3 CE from Windows 7 Pro SP1 64-bit leaves behind 28 entries in the Windows Registry.

How to repeat:
1. Use Piriform CCleaner (or equivalent) to scan and resolve any Windows Registry issues beforehand.

2. Uninstall MySQL Workbench 6.3 CE from Windows and use Piriform CCleaner (or equivalent) to scan the Windows Registry for Installer Reference Issues.

Result: 28 leftover Installer Reference Issues present in Windows Registry

Suggested fix:
The MySQL Workbench 6.3 CE uninstaller should clean up this mess.
