Morning JNeilson_609,

in Toad for Oracle 10.5 (on Windows), How can I set up an
App to run completely unattended, like at 04:00? I have
been using variations of “C:\Program Files\Quest
Software\Toad for Oracle 10.5\Toad.exe” -c
xxxxxxxx/********@server -a “11_DGCON” but it only works if
I an logged in.

Schedule it to run at 04:00 as normal. Then use the Windows Scheduler
tool and find your job, right-click, properties, chage the login
username and password to yours and save.

HTH

Cheers,

Thanks Norm.
I’d tried just what you suggested several times but I just did it again on another machine and it worked. Since the machine I just used is in my location , and the one I have been using unsuccessfully is a virtual machine on our network but at a different physical location, I suspect that the administrators have locked down security - probably firewall. So now I can (perhaps) look in the right place!
