New user downloaded & installed workbench today.
Same process as all my other users.
Configured with Redshift Driver (inc. SDK)

However, when trying to connect (Redshift) is getting an error "com/amazonaws/util/StringUtils"

Has anyone seen this before ?
Any ideas where to start looking for answers ?

What is the actual error?  Class not found?  If so, you would need to add a JAR containing that class.  A quick Google search reveals you can obtain it from here:

It seems that the Redshift Driver needs more than one JAR file to work properly.

Details should be in Redshift's manual.
