This one only offers up Repair, not Install. It never updates the patch level.

The new file is definitely up there, but I saw the same problem as you. The old one is getting cached somewhere. I was able to get around it by downloading from Toad World rather than using the auto-update in Toad.

We've added some parameters on the file in Toad World with will hopefully prevent this.

I'm going to delete your message and mine later today or tomorrow. I like to keep this thread clean. I tried to lock it but for some reason it doesn't lock.
