WorkBench database designer MySQL Mac only shows white screen

Hi there.  I just installed WorkBench database designer MySQL Mac for designing and modeling databases.  Why am I only having a white screen when I launch the program?  Could this be a compatibility issue with my OSx?  I have an iMac with OSx Mountain Lion.

Hi! Make sure that you install your Workbench MYSQL correctly without any error or problem encounter. Also make sure that you downloaded the installer completely. I don't think that the compatibility issue is the problem of your software because before the installation will start the software will automatically detect and say that your software has a compatibility issue and it will not allow you to continue installing it to your computer.

I recommend to uninstall and install your Workbench again or download the latest version of this software which is 5.5.14, here is a guide that you may follow for effective installation:

1. Double click the PKG file to start the installation then just follow the instruction given.

2. When asking for a password enter a secure password and it will now install the MYSQL server in /usr/local.

3. You need to add the /usr/local/mysql/bin to the path, to do this edit the .Profile file.

4. Run the /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld_safe & and you can now start using the MYSQL server. You can also run this in your startup by just clicking the icon.
