I realize that the official party line from Oracle is that Windows 7 will not be supported until the release of Oracle 11gR2 for Windows - but I would like to try to use it anyway. I have a new, fast, Windows 7 computer sitting idly at my desk waiting to be put to use.
What is the simplest, most straightforward/reliable method to use TOAD under Windows 7 at the present time?
Is it possible to install the latest Oracle 11gR1 Oracle client in a Windows XP compatibility mode under Windows 7 and use TOAD 10.x.x with that?
Any hints, tips or pointers to additional information most apprec.
