After I installed MySQL Workbench by MySQL installer, I launched the workbench main interface successfully. However when I tried to click the "Local instance MySQL56" and it popped up a Unexpected Error window said "The type initializer for 'HtmlRenderer.Utils.FontsUtils' threw an exception." and asking me to report this bug to you to fix it. The first time I tried to click "Close" of this error window and trying to click the "Local instance MySQL56" again but nothing happened. I tried other options on main interface, most of them worked fine (Sorry I didn't have time to try everything out). I tried to click the plus button above  "Local instance MySQL56" box which is right behind "MySQL Connections" tittle. In that window I clicked "Configure Server Management..." button and following the guide I saw it said connection testing was done and everything was OK.

You can try to go through it again as what I said in "Description"

Suggested fix:
I guess the problem is from the font util since the tittle of exception looks like it is. Therefore I will try to re-install MySQL Server to see whether there is any option relating to font util and I will choose it carefully.

Thank you for the bug report. I could't repeat on my side on Windows 10 Pro and server version 5.6 and 8.0.16. Are you tried to re-install using the repair option?. Thanks.

I just ran into this error now. "the type initializer for 'HtmlRenderer.Utils.FontsUtils' threw an exception".
Its clearly an issue with the FONT of the system/application. For me everything was working fine and BOOOM, all of a sudden i started getting this error. I can remeber installing several new fonts on my system b4 today.

I have even installed the latest version which is 8.0.20 and this error still persist.
What do u think is the cause or solution to this error
