This morning I upgraded to toad for oracle 188.8.131.529
100% of the time when starting a new connection
[as in "session" / "new connection" / select_a_predefined_line_item(s) / "connect"
then each item(s) connected to pop a this error:
Could not convert variant of type (OleStr) into type (Integer)
the resultant SQL window seems "ok"/functional
I did notice the window's tab contains unexpected text like its a mal-formed query
