MySQL Workbench 8.0.23 won't open in Big Sur Intel Mac

Hello,

As the subject says the latest version of Workbench does not open on an Intel Mac running Big Sur. There's a very similar thread that references the Apple M1 chip.

In this thread it refers to Python as being the issue. Specifically "new Python3 dependencies". Another poster on this thread suggests running this in Terminal.

which python
/usr/bin/python

which python3
/usr/bin/python3


The first instance of Python is an alias back to:

/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin/python2.7

The second, python3, is an executable in /usr/bin/.

Another poster on the thread suggests intstall "just the framework" for Python3 to solve the issue.

I have downgraded back to 8.0.22 and it runs. I would like to fix this somehow. Not sure the best way? Run the framework installer? Modify my environment config to load python3? Or wait for an update to Workbench.

Thanks!

Duane Mitchell
