I've the latest Workbench(5.2.32 CE) installed and I've been same issues. When I'm testing some connection I receive this... "Can't connect to Mysql server on '127.0.0.1'(10061). Since I was using xampp 1.7.3 there was not this issue with Mysql Query Browser or Workbench.
I'ts totally freakin', since I can use phpmyadmin to create bd and tables and cannot use workbench or mysql query browser to do same thing, I'd checkout xampp security settings and there was the following... "A MySQL server is not running or is blocked by a firewall! status: UNKNOWN. My firewall is not blockin' it.
