Toad starting very slowly when installed into PC without public internet access



When Toad is installed into the PC that resides in company intranet (so without access to public internet), Toad is starting up very slowly.

These two are loaded very slowly:

  • Checking for critical files..

  • Initializing Version Engine...

On total I am waiting well over a minute for these two.

Toad is installed using "RESTRICTIONS=i", which should disable internetaccess:

PS> msiexec /i "..../toad/ToadforOracle_GA_14.1.120.923_x64_En.msi" /q RESTRICTIONS=i

I have checked registry entry also, this seems fine to me:

I also tried this (Toad.ini), but no luck:


On PC where I have public internet access, it opens up within 1-2 seconds.

For Toad 14.0 GA release, there was no such issue.


Raul, with Toad closed...

  1. Remove all files from... C:\ProgramData\Quest Software\DBT\CVE\Logs
  2. Open Toad.ini in text editor; its default location is %APPDATA%\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\14.1\User Files\Toad.ini
  3. Add DEBUG=1 to the [SETTINGS] section and save
  4. Open Toad
  5. Close Toad once it has fully initialized; there is no need to make any connections, etc.
  6. Send all files generated in C:\ProgramData\Quest Software\DBT\CVE\Logs and in Toad's log folder to me. The default location for Toad's log folder is %APPDATA%\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\14.1\User Files\logs

I'll shoot you a direct message with my email.

I have the same problem.
What is the solution of problem?

I suppose they'll have to fix it.
