Integrating Workbench python.exe into PyCharm fails

Hello all.

I have a plugin written in Python 2 that has been laying around for ~2 years.

I started installing MySQL Workbench on my new computer and noticed that my plugin isn't working anymore, that is, having installed the plugin the way I used to makes MySQL Workbench crash.

I then installed JetBrains PyCharm, which fails to integrate the WB internal python.exe.

I posted to the JetBrains forums here:

Here you can see what PyCharm spits out as error messages (see screenshots there):

"Cannot set up a Python SDK at (C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Workbench 8.0 CE\python.exe). The SDK seems invalid."


"Fatal Python error: initfsencoding: unable to load the file system codec
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'encodings'

Current thread: blabla...:"

The JB representative hinted that he gets the same error, quote:

"I have installed MySQL Workbench 8.0.33 and have the same issue when I run python.exe outside the IDE, so it seems to be an issue with their Python distribution."

Will the WB fix this (anytime soon) or what's the desired solution here?

I could fiddle with the Python interpreter with myself, but I think this is not the long-term desired solution here (if it works at all).

Comments (from the team) welcome.
