I am trying to evaluate Toad for Oracle 126.96.36.199. I have installed this version on a Windows 2003 Server (32-bit) trying to connect to an Oracle 11g Express edition database. At the logon page, I am connecting to the HR account using the ‘XE’ database. After I put in my user ID and password and click on the ‘Connect’ button, I get 'Toad for Oracle has encountered a problem. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Access violation at address 073CB3A6 in module ‘Toad.exe’. Read of address 00000000.’
I then click on the error dialogue box
then I get another dialogue box error containing the following message:
Toad for Oracle has encountered a problem. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Access violation at address 06D7D3EC in module ‘Toad.exe’. Read of address 00000008.’
then I get logged on. At this point I am at the default Toad’s Editor page. The edit panel is disabled and grayed out and I am not able to enter any SQL commands.
Finally, when I try to exit Toad, whether I click on the ‘x’ at the upper right hand of the page or navigate to ‘File’ and then click on ‘Exit’ , I get ‘Access violation at address 06DEEEB4 in module ‘Toad.exe’ Read of address 00000007’ and Toad would not close. Looks like the only way to exit Toad is by killing the Toad.exe process in the Task Manager.
Does anyone have any ideas what is causing these issues?
