Can connection profiles be made without immediate connection to the database? I would like to enter in the database connection information in the connection window and just save the information for now. I do not want to automatically connect to the database at this time.
If there is a previous install of Toad, the connections.xml file can be migrated over to the new install. This will carry over the connection profile information from the other install.
The connection file's default located is C:\Documents and Settings\<personal folder> \Local Settings\Application Data\Quest Software\Toad for MySQL 2.0
Please note, the Local Settings and Application Data folder may be set as hidden folders. It may be necessary to unhide all folders to find them. The connections.xml file does not include passwords which are encrypted and can't be accessed and transferred with the .xml. This is for security reasons.
An enhancement request has been submitted to Development for consideration in future release of Toad for MySQL.
