Toad for Oracle 11.5 does not launch

I currently have Toad for Oracle 11.5 installed and it was working perfectly till the application became unresponsive. I had to kill the application using Task Manager and after that Toad does not launch

You can manually reset Toad to a "like new" condition by renaming this folder in windows:

  1. C:\Users\YOUR_WINDOWS_USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle
  2. Start Toad.
  3. That folder will be recreated.

To copy your connections back:

  1. Close Toad
  2. Copy from Connections.* from C:\Users\YOUR_WINDOWS_USER_NAME\AppData\Roaming\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle (renamed)\11.5\User Files to the same location in the new folder.
