Migrate TOAD settings

I need to migrate the settings of TOAD 10.6 to 11.0

They are running on separate PCs.

I did share the program files from the old PC to the new one, and pointed there
when I was prom[ted, but it did not seem to do it, neither did it take the
connections.

Any suggestions?

Hello,

Were you able to take these steps? The 11.0 Install Guide (in the Docs folder
with your build) includes steps to import settings during or after installation
of 11.0 (from another computer).

To import settings during installation

  1. On your old computer, open Windows Explorer and locate the Toad settings
    folder.

Tip: To find the settings folder, select View | Toad Options | General . The
folder

location is listed in the Application data directory field.

  1. Copy the folder to the new computer, a network it can connect to, or a
    storage device.

  2. Install and open Toad on the new computer.

Note: You need your license key to complete this step.

  1. Select Copy previous user files on the Initial Setup wizard.

  2. Click and navigate to the copied folder.

  3. Click Finish .

Import Settings After Installation

You may need to manually import your settings after installation if:

l You accidentally selected to perform a clean install when you installed a new

version of Toad

l You have already installed Toad on a new computer and your Toad settings are
on

another computer

To import settings after installation

  1. If your Toad settings are on another computer, complete the following steps:

a. On your old computer, open Windows Explorer and locate the Toad

settings folder.

Tip: To find the settings folder, select View | Toad Options | General . The
folder

location is listed in the Application data directory field.

b. Copy the folder to the new computer, a network it can connect to, or a

storage device.

  1. Open the settings folder for the new installation of Toad .

Tip: To find the settings folder, select View | Toad Options | General . The
folder

location is listed in the Application data directory field.

  1. Close any open instances of Toad.

  2. Delete everything in the new settings folder except for the QSAuth11.key
    file, if it is present.

Note: QSAuth11.key is a license key issued with old versions of Toad, but it is
still valid

for new versions of Toad. If this file is not in your Toad settings folder, then
you have a

new Toad license key.

  1. Open the new installation of Toad.

  2. Select Copy previous user files on the Initial Setup wizard.

  3. Click and select the Toad settings folder you want to import.

  4. Click Finish .

Regards,

Donna

Everything worked like a charm ( after a few attempts).

Thanks for the excellent instructions.
