Just downloaded new version of Toad as my previous version expired.
Unfortunately using same user details TNSNAMES.ORA etc etc
i get a window showing “Items Checked” which all have green ticks, but at the top i have a load of chinese text which i assume is some sort of error message as below:
TNS_ADMIN environment variable is defined as “c:\Oracle817\Network\Admin”
“c:\Oracle817\Network\Admin\tnsnames.ora” was located
The following connect descriptor was found for ORCL.WORLD in the tnsnames.ora file
ORCL.world = (DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS_LIST = (ADDRESS = (COMMUNITY = tcp.world)(PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = tgbpc)(PORT = 1521)) ) (CONNECT_DATA = (SID = orcl) ) )
“c:\Oracle817\Network\Admin\sqlnet.ora” was located
NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH specifies TNSNAMES in the sqlnet.ora file
We are using Oracle817… and have been using TOAD for many years.
