I hope that I am not spamming. I recently upgraded my windows to windows 10 from windows 7. I re-installed MySQL Workbench. But I am not able to open it, there is no error message as well.
I also followed this post's suggestion, but still am not able to open MySQL workbench.
I also upgraded
mysql community server pack to latest version. I am able to use
mysql odbc connector to connect to remote server. But MySQL workbench is not working.

This exact situation happened to me. In my case, it was because I went into the program files and then did a cut and paste of the shortcut there and placed it on the desktop. I was unable to launch Workbench from the desktop after doing this. After many attempts, I thought to just open the shortcut from its original location in MySQL/MySQL Workbench 8.0 CE. Now, it works every time.
You can also right click on the shortcut in the program files and click create shortcut or click Send to and pick a location for the shortcut (this method worked fine for me when choosing the Desktop, at least). Cut and paste does not work for some reason. I hope this helps you or anyone else having the same problem. This is all assuming you have the latest versions of Visual C++ and Microsoft .NET Frameworks already installed on your computer.
