I didn't notice another discussion regarding this problem I have been having so I figured it would be safe to ask.
I have just recently installed Mysql database and workbench on a computer. I open up the workbench to establish a new connection to the database on the localhost and I test the connection - Mysql workbench suggests that the connection parameters are correct. So I go back to the main Workbench program and click on the connection I just made so I can start creating tables and filling them out graphically. But when I click on the connection it shows the splashscreen and then tells me "Connection Cancelled" in the status bar on the bottom. I am able to right click on the connection that I just made and start the command line client and edit it that way.
What gives? I don't think I have permissions issues missing since I am able to get to the command line console...
I am running Windows server 2008 r2
