Hi Gunilla,

If you’re using Toad for Oracle 9.7.2 on both your old machine and your
new machine, all you would need to do is copy the following directory from your
old PC to a networked or thumb drive:

For Windows XP and earlier:

C:\Documents and Settings\Application Data\Quest Software\Toad for
Oracle\9.7

For Windows Vista and higher:

C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\QuestSoftware\Toad for Oracle\9.7

Then run Toad once on the new machine. It will create a similar directory, based
on the version of Windows. Once it’s been created you can restore the
contents of this directory from the network or thumb drive.

If you’re running Toad 10 or higher on the new machine, the first time you
run Toad, you will be presented with a window asking if you’d like to copy
your settings from a previous installation. In this window, simply click the
ellipsis button to select the 9.7 backup folder from your network or thumb
drive:

how can I get this dialog box to appear after Toad has already been installed. It seems like this dialog box is only available during the install process.

This dialog is only present in Toad 10 and higher. To get it to reappear after Toad has been installed and run, simply rename your Toad.ini file in your User Files folder for the Toad installation.
