Renci.SshNet error using MySQL

Hi all,

Trying to set up Toad for MySQL on a new laptop. However when trying to connect to our MySQL DB, we got this error:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException
Could not load file or assembly 'Renci.SshNet, Version=2016.1.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1cee9f8bde3db106' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
Stack Trace:
at MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection.Open()
at Quest.Toad.MySQL.MySQLConnection.OpenInitialTestConnection()
at Quest.Toad.MySQL.MySQLConnection.DoBeforeConnect()
at Quest.Toad.Db.Connection.Connect(Boolean notify)
at Quest.Toad.Db.Provider.BackgroundConnector.CreateBackgroundConnection()

We are using Toad for MySQL 7.3.1.3290, and it works fine on all our other machines. It seems the software is trying to connect -- we receive this message with whatever connection information we entered. Any ideas?
Thanks!

Hi, it looks like you have a problem with Toad for MySQL, anyway you can also try Toad Edge that has support for MySQL.

@Debbie_Peabody @Filip.Cevela looks like an issue with Toad for MySQL,

Toad for MySQL is not supported tool anymore. I recommend using Toad Edge
