Error upon startup of Toad 3.0

I recently installed Toad 3.0 on a server and upon startup of application I receive the following error.


External component has thrown an exception.

Stack Trace:

I have not seen this error before.

Are all updates to .net and OS done? If not bring up to date.

How are you logged on? Are you using your normal log id? Or something different. I would first uninstall and reinstall using your normal log id.

Also, check for any different visual settings such as themes, enlarged fonts, etc.
