Error while installing Toad Freeware


I’m trying to install the freeware version of Toad, i.e. 4.6. In the middle of the installation, I get the following error:

An error occured while creating the instance “TOAD46”. The return code is “4294965378”. Create the instance manually using the command “db2icrt”.

I thought the error had something to do with my Windows OS being 64-bit. But I’ve seen the same version installed successfully on a 64-bit system on a different machine.

Do I need to install something from IBM prior to installing toad? Seems unlikely since I can install the beta version just fine.

Supported from 4.7 only
