How do you silently install Toad for Oracle 9.5 and all associated applications? I tried following the Getting Started Guide for Toad to install, but it seems like it only installs Toad for Oracle. It does not install any Knowledge Xperts or SQL Tuning/SQL Optimizer applications. How do I install all silently?
In Toad 9.5 the installer has been re-packaged. The Getting Started guide will tell you how to install Toad, but these install instructions does not include the installation of Knowledge Xpert PL/SQL or Ora Admin, or of Quest SQL Optimizer. If you are licensed for KXpert PL/SQL, Quest SQL Optimizer, or Kxpert for Ora Admin, you will need to install these individually.
For Toad for Oracle 9.5 and up, you will need to run silent installs for each application individually, if supported.
Version 9.5 and 9.6
To silently install all of Toad and it's associated applications you will need to unpack the installer as directed in the Toad Getting Started Guide, using the Packer.exe on the full commercial version installer that you download from SupportLink (i.e. Toad for Oracle 9.5 Commercial.exe). You can download the packer.exe from SupportLink also. When you unpack this, you will find various files for Knowledge_Xpert_(Oracle_Administration), Knowledge_Xpert_(PLSQL), QAIT, QuestSQLOptimizer_Oracle, Toad for Oracle, etc. (the files vary, according to which version of the installer you download).
1. Toad for Oracle:
You would install Toad as directed by the Toad Getting Started Guide.
2. SQL Optimizer:
The Optimizer application has changed and so you will need the following directions to properly in stall SQL Optimizer and it's required components. Here are directions on installing Optimizer if you are licensed for it.
Note: .NET 2.0 sp1 is needed for SQL Optimizer. Please install that before installing Optimizer.
3. Knowledge Xpert
Depending on what version of KXpert, some older versions may not support silent installs and some newer versions use the Wise Installation Wizard installers which can run the /s command on the .exe. For the newest v10.x run the msiexec command to silently install. The link below gives directions for silent install.
4. Toad Tuning 6 may also provided in the install bundle (QuestSQLTuning_Oracle_612.exe). This is the previous version of Tuning (the Optimizer 7 is install described above). You do not need both installed to use Optimizer, but this is an option. This v6 Tuning does not support silent install so if you would like to have this older version of Tuning on your system also, you will need to install this manually with the exe provided/extracted.
5. There is also the Toad_Group_Policy_Manager (TGPM95Setup.msi). This is included in your Toad license, and if you would like to install this, you would follow similar installation steps you did for Toad (unpack and then run the msi) and execute the silent install using the msiexec command line.
