I have been using Toad for Oracle Freeware Version 22.214.171.124 g for several months. I connect to Oracle Environment 126.96.36.199. This might not be supported or recommended, but it worked for the simple tasks I used it for (mainly quick looks at tables, data, and procedures).
The latest freeware version expired on May 1, 2010.
When I went to download the latest EXE, I was presented with a new version of the freeware, version 10.5.0.41. I installed this version and when I connect I get the following error: “Error initializing Team Coding: Access violation at address 03E174A1 in Module ‘ORA805.dll’. Read of address 00000010.”
Although it connects to the DB, the table names are replaced with Ascii(29) and no data is viewable.
Is the older freeware version still available?
If not, are there other tools that someone can recommend?
