Cannot install TDOA 2.6.1 on a new desktop

I tried to install a TOAD on my new desktop WIN XP Pro 32 B.
However, the installation package sent me to MS .NET download.
Initially I downloaded .NET 4, but the TDOA did not recognized and redirected me back to MS website.
I removed .NET 4 and installed 3.5. The same story, TDOA tells me that it requires the latest .Net framework.
I am not sure what to do at this point.

I have clean machine and cannot install a software.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Greener,

We need .NET 3.5 SP1, please try this link see if it helps.



I will test it on Monday and let you know if it works.

Thanks, It worked.

I like the program but .NET behind is really pain.
I wish it would be like a regular TOAD; no framework required.


I can understand .net being a pain. We decided to use it because it gave us full Unicode support where regular Toad has had many issues with this.
