(Bug) MySQL Workbench: Current Profile Has no WMI enabled

For unknown reason, we have been encountering “Current Profile Has no WMI enabled” whenever we tried to access server instance in the “Server Administration” column for the first time (note: we only encounter this issue with our vps and dedicated server).

Do the following to replicate the issue:

  1. Install MySQL Workbench for the first time.
  2. Click on “New Server Instance” under “Server Administration” column and add the new server instance.
  3. Double click on the new instance that you have just created.
  4. An error message will pop up, it will read “Current Profile Has no WMI enabled”.

To resolve the issue, simply click on “Manage Server Instances” under “Server Administration” column and close the screen again.
Now click on the instance again, the issue should be fixed.

  1. Worked like a charm. Kudos!

    Super weird though; I’ve added about six server instances previous to this one without incident.

  2. Totally buggy software, but thanks for this workaround. Spent hours re-installing, for many problems before I got to this one.
