MySQL Workbench :: mysql workbench has stop working

just upgraded to windows 10 home
I have workbench 6.0

When I forward engineer a mysql export file it completes
I then do connect to a database with a user and a database name and
I get the following pop up message screen

mysql workbench has stop working
a problem has stopped caused this program from working correctly,
Windows will close this program and notify you if a solution is available

I have tried other versions of workbench and had this happen

Additional Information

I also seem to get this messages a well

Connection Warning
incompatible/nonstandard server version or connection protocol detected (10.1.21)
a connection to this database can be estabblished but some mysql workbench features may not woek properly since the database is not fully compatible with the support versions of mysql

mysql workbench is developed and tested for mysql server versions
5.1, 5.5 5.6 and 5.7

there are two buttons that say
continue anyway or cancel

If you hit continue you get into the connections screen which a message say at the top of the screen “warning not supported”

I am using MySQL Workbench 6.0.9
Windows (x86, 32-bit), MSI Installer

I am also using
ApacheFriends XAMPP Version 7.0.15


OK, first I am no expert on this. This is what I have come up with.
If you have downloaded “XAMPP” keep it !
There should a be “README” file in:
Read it.
If it says you are using the MariaDB DATABASE then you can’t use the newer version(s) of mysql workbench

You should use the latest version of MySQL Workbench (which is 6.3.9 currently) and use it with servers it is made for and tested with (which is all MySQL server versions from 5.5 onwards).

In addition what you do is this:
Use MySQL Installer 5.7 for Windows
(This will give you all MYSQL Products in Package)
You can custom install what you want
Make sue you install the mysql database as a service

To run this everything:
Run Apache on your “XAMPP” panel
Do Not mysql on your “XAMPP” panel
Run the mysql database as a service and run mysql workbench against this database
