How can find out which are the latest GA verions of MySQL Server & Workbench supported under Windows 7?
On the 'MySQL Product Support EOL Announcements' page it states:
Per the MySQL Support Lifecycle policy regarding ending support for OS versions that are obsolete or have reached end of life, we plan to discontinue building all MySQL binaries for Microsoft Windows 7 as of June 23, 2016
But I am unable to find information on which versions DO support Windows 7.
I tried using the installer: MySQL Installer-Web seems to be the same for versions 5.6.45, 5.7.27 and 8.17.0 and each of these installers offers me the upgrade of my x64 system to 5.7.27 and my x86 system to 5.7.26. I would usually take that at face value, and assume the installer was suggesting the latest GA version for my system BUT it also offers me MySQL Workbench 8.0.17 x64, which I know to be incorrect because
- it results in an 'You are running an unsupported operating system' message
- Supported Platforms: MySQL Workbench clearly states that current Workbench only supports Windows 10
