It used to work...came in today, and it starts giving me this...any thoughts?

any reason why your user files folder can't be written to? is there another process using the folder or files in it? (maybe another copy of Toad running?)

Hi there,

Were you able to resolve this? I am facing the same issue with no resolution in sight.
Its TOAD 13.3 64bit on WIndows 10 Professional.

Worked fine for months and just stopped working.
I have tried reinstalling with cleaning the AppData/Roaming directories.
Running it as Administrator
Running it in Compatibility mode.
Granted full permissions to Everyone on all of the quest folders, also made sure that none was read-only.

All I get is the below

I can't think of any reason why this would happen.

If you zip up and send me your user files folder, I will try to reproduce it.
