Cannot open second instance of TOAD


5 minutes ago I had two instances of TOAD opened.
Then I closed it and tried to open two instances again - no luck.
I am using Toad for SQL Server 5.8.1

I think it’s disabled in free version.
I just checked Tools/Options/
“Allow multiple copies of TOAD to run”
is greyed out :frowning:

Right, it is not allowed in Freeware.


Thanks Alexander.
I am just wondering why it allowed me to open two instances earlier…?
Maybe there is a hack?


Probably :slight_smile:
