Toad 4.6 in Win7 x64?


#1

Hi guys,

I see that TSS 4.6 will install on Windows7 x64 as a 32-bit exe. Will
there be a full 64-bit version soon?

Thanks, Thomas

We have plans for it but it won’t be done for the 5.0.

Hi Thomas,

Being a .NET application, the majority of our codebase can be easily compiled to
x64, but we have a lot dependencies on 32-bit unmanaged code… so it will
be a while before we’re ready to make the jump. But yes, we run great on
64-bit systems (half of us here use 64-bit windows now). TSS 5.0 is going to be
a good release!

Lee and Thomas !

I concur with Lee about Window 7…

I have been running in a production environment Windows 7-64 Ultimate on a
Toshiba E105-S1402 4gb with P8400 CPU since the release of the RTM on last July
2009… The stability has been exceptional on this 64 bit OS.

The only problem I have run into has been with SQL Server 2008 Developer (64bit)
taking all my memory on commands like DBCC, so I had to limit MY server instance
on same to below 2000 mb …I have it configured to 1792 based multiples of
128MB…

My CPU memory at Idle is 1750mb (see graphic below) when I have Toad-ss Beta up
and running, SSMS 2008 up and Outlook… When I run a intense command set the
free memory will drop down to 500mb and will not return unless I start and stop
SQL Server.

My next system will have 8gb or memory just for this very reason. It will be a
Toshiba E205-1904, not because it is a Toshiba or a Best Buys exclusive, it is
because it is the best bang for my buck or the Best use of Money and power in a
small platform, It comes with some terrific software.

I especially like the backlit keyboard.

Remember if you are running toad-ss against a server then none of the above
really applies. It is not Toad-SS that is taking the memory it was the SS-2008
developer edition.

I hope this has been helpful !!!

Thanks guys! We’re moving to SSIS 2K8 on 64-bit so everyone has to have
a 64-bit box to work on. It’s tough…
