Just a guess, but look for a file called ToadActions.dat. It will be in your user files folder. Rename it and then try to start Toad again.

Thanks John

I received a similar issue, but on the messsage was “Invalid stream format.” Any thought?

jrogers3, did you try what I suggested to person who started this thread?

Hi Sir,
in the reply for the initial thread it was mentioned to use higher version of software whereas I am using higher version as mentioned in that reply. I.e. My version “Support Bundle for Toad for Oracle 12.7.1.11” 64 bit.

Please provide suitable solution.

Thanks & Regards

I think you might be getting your threads crossed. The initial reply in this thread was to try renaming ToadActions.dat. to see if that is the cause of the error.

I did try the renaming of the ToadAction.dat file, and it recreated the ToadAction.dat file after restarting Toad, but it did not resolve the issue.

After posting above, I tried deleting the whole folder under AppData. Then I reopened Toad and it worked. Sorry for the slow response.

No problem on the response time.

If you still have that folder, look for Toad.el or Toad.elf inside it… Send me the file and I may be able to isolate the problem. You can send it to john.dorlon@quest.com

Thanks.

John,

I received a similar issue. I have followed the steps you have mentioned above but no luck.

I have provided the details below. Can you please help me ASAP.

Can you send/attach the entire call stack? The first few lines don’t help too much.

Hi, I had the some problem and I fixed it renaming the SavedSQL.dat in the folder UserFiles

Hi. I am having a similar error (Stream Read error) with Toad 11.5 when I open a session browser. I tried renaming the files mentioned in this thread and another thread with no success. Can you please help?

Hello,

I experienced the same “Stream read error” and tried renaming the files above but it didn’t remediate the problem. The other suggestion was to purge the entire contents of the C:\Users<User>\AppData\Roaming\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\11.6\ folder. I backed it up first and then deleted it. Restarted Toad. I logged into one of my databases and was then able to open a Schema Browser window without receiving the error.
