Important note:

In previous TDM versions, it was possible to modify Default OTPs. The new System (default) OTPs, which this Beta version brings, would overwrite your modified default OTPs. Therefore, we recommend:

  1. To back up the default OTPs you modified (particular .txo file) before you install the new Beta version

  2. Install the new Beta version.

  3. Copy the old .txo files to the user section at:

C:\Documents and Settings\user\My Documents\Toad Data Modeler Beta\Selected OTPs

Download the new Beta from:

Uninstall of the previous Beta version is NOT necessary. Feel free to install the new Beta version straight away.

We hope you will like the new Beta. Please check it out, test new enhancements and let us know your experience!
