How to create Support Bundles

The support bundle window provides information about several aspects of your Oracle and Toad setups. In addition, the Support Bundle lets you easily report problems to our peer-to-peer mailing lists or directly to Support.
If Toad itself fails, the Error dialog box displays. This type of an error creates a log, saved as toad.elf. This Eureka LogFile (.elf) contains both the application information and the callstack of the error created, and can be very helpful to Support in solving issues you are having with Toad.

To create a support bundle:

Select Help | Support Bundle.

Review the following for additional information:

Email Quest Support

This opens the “Email Quest Support” window with instructions and links to contact Support, and to open a new case or service request.

Quest Web Support

This opens Quest Software’s award-winning Support portal in your default browser, with access to Licensing Assistance, the searchable Knowledge Base, product downloads and more.

Attach TOAD.INI (or SQL Tuning Support details) to emails

If selected, this attaches the details to any email sent through the support bundle, whether it is to the peer-to-peer Toad list or to Support.
