MySQL Notifier 1.1.7 has been released

Dear MySQL users,

The MySQL Windows Experience Team is proud to announce the release of
MySQL Notifier version 1.1.7, the latest addition to the MySQL
Installer for Windows.

MySQL Notifier enables developers and DBAs to easily monitor, start and
stop all their MySQL database instances. It provides a familiar
Microsoft SQL Server look and feel and integrates with MySQL Workbench.

MySQL Notifier is installed using the MySQL Installer for Windows.

The MySQL installer comes in 2 versions

- Full (150 MB) which includes a complete set of mysql products with
  their binaries included in the download


- Web (1.5 MB - a network install) which will just pull the MySQL
  Notifier over the web and install it when run.

You can download MySQL Installer from our official Downloads page at

Changes in MySQL Notifier 1.1.7 (2016-08-01)

   Functionality Added or Changed

     * The automatic migration of connections from MySQL
       Notifier to MySQL Workbench can now be delayed for a
       period of time or suspended indefinitely.

     * An option for setting the interval to ping monitored
       MySQL server instances for status changes was added to
       the Actions, Options menu.

   Bugs Fixed

     * The Configure Instance option was renamed to Manage
       Instance. (Bug #24339668)

     * An error was displayed when valid domain user credentials
       were used to add a remote Windows service. (Bug

     * Testing new connections for remote MySQL instances would
       display a "High Severity Error" message. (Bug #24010582)

     * When MySQL Notifier was installed using MySQL Installer,
       an exception was thrown and MySQL Notifier failed to
       start. (Bug #23762891)

     * The SQL Editor link to MySQL Workbench was disabled for
       each monitored MySQL instance or service when MySQL
       Workbench was installed. (Bug #23748734)

     * Validation checking identified domain\username as an
       invalid format to use when adding a remote Windows
       service to be monitored. Now, domain users with
       sufficient permissions to access the remote computer can
       connect using the domain\username format. (Bug #23746334)

     * The main XML element in %APPDATA%\Oracle\MySQL
       Notifier\settings.config was renamed to MySQLNotifier
       from MySQLForExcel. Indentations were added to improve
       the overall readability of configuration settings. (Bug

     * Windows services on a remote computer were not retrieved
       and could not be added to the list services to be
       monitored. (Bug #23667056)

     * A corrupted connections.xml file caused MySQL Notifier to
       display a "Root element is missing" error message when
       started. (Bug #22160640, Bug #73540)

     * Attempts to subscribe to a remote Windows service for the
       first time failed and returned a "High Severity Error"
       message when the remote service was an instance of MySQL.
       (Bug #20389122, Bug #75319)

     * Case-sensitive naming prevented status changes to MySQL
       instances running as services for Windows. Now, service
       names for MySQL instances are added with compatible
       casing. (Bug #19881188, Bug #74516)

     * A "High Severity Error" raised by MySQL Notifier appeared
       intermittently during installations performed using MySQL
       Installer. (Bug #17825477)
