Problem downloading MySQL Workbench

I already run MAMP on my machine. When I go to open the workbench download file I get the following warning. Disk images couldn't be opened - image not recognized. Can anyone help me solve this issue. Thanks!

Kyle, I am not entirely sure what's causing the imaging issue with MySQL workbench it had installed fine for me but will say I found Sequel Pro to be a better tool for me anyway. I use it both in these tutorials as well as for my day-to-day work needs http://www.sequelpro.com/ I know this answer didn't directly help with MySQL Workbench, but maybe Sequel Pro will tickle your fancy better.

Thanks for suggesting Sequel Pro. I already run MAMP which has a sequel server. Can Sequel Pro run with that server or does it have its own? Thanks again.

Sequel Pro allows you to manage Databases, it doesn't actually run a server so you use it in conjunction with MAMP. Example, I have several different servers that I connect to. One being localhost which is my machine, and two others which are hosted on the web. Sequel Pro just lets you manage your connections and can perform queries just like MySQL workbench. I also run MAMP Pro on my Macbook so I am familiar with your concerns.
