Toad installation issue - please help!

Hello. I’m trying to set up Toad for Data Analysts for a client of mine and he keeps getting errors generated when he launches the application - errors are:

Tried initializing facilities before licensing was setup
Stack Trace:
at Quest.Toad.Util.FacilityFactory.CheckInit()
at Quest.Toad.Util.FacilityFactory.GetFacilities(String facilityPath)
at Quest.Toad.Db.Provider.GetProviders()

at Quest.Toad.ConnectionManager.ConnectionHierarchy…ctor()
at Quest.Toad.ConnectionManager.ConnectionHierarchy.get_Instance()
at Quest.Toad.StartupForm.LoadAssemblies()

I’m not a Toad user, so any help would be appreciated in trying to get him up and running.
