I'm on Windows 7 64-bit operating system.

I cannot able to start an instance of the MySQL 5.6 server. When I am attempting to start it from within the MySQL workbench, I am getting the below:

2013-11-23 14:05:07 - Checking service status of instance MySQL...
2013-11-23 14:05:07 - Status check of service 'MySQL' returned stopped

I have also tried starting the Windows service manually. I have configured the service to log on as "Local System account". Again results with the following error:

error 1053: the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion

I have also tried by disabling my firewall and completely reinstalled the MySQL server.

It should possibly be noted that (I assume as a result of all this) I also cannot log into the MySQL command-line client. It tells me:

Can't connect to MySQL server on 'localhost' (10061)

Can anybody help me with this?

Try the following steps, it should work!

  1. Right click on the MySQL Notifier -> Actions -> Manage Monitored Items.
  2. Highlight the MySQL56 entry and click on the delete button.
  3. Then click the add button -> windows service.
  4. Scroll down and look for the  MySQL56.
  5. Highlight it and click on ok.
