My computer crashed and I need to re-install Toad. I have installed the tnsnames.ora file and set the ORACLE_HOME and TNS_ADMIN shell variables. I have SQL developer installed and it is working fine. But when I go to set up the connection in Toad, it only gives me options for direct connections rather than use the TNS entry. I would like Toad to get the connection information from the TNS entry (is this called OCI?)
I know there used to be (are still??) issues with Toad x64. I have a 64 bit OS, and have installed the x64 version of SQL developer, if that makes a difference.
