Ireceive this message when installing Toad for Oracle Commercial Installer.
The following products require .NET Framework 2.0 and cannot be installed right now:
-Quest SQL Optimizer for Oracle
The .NET Framework can be installed form Windows Update (http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com)
Then I went to the Microsoft site provided to download/install .Net Framework 2.0. After that I tried to install Toad for Oracle 9.6.1 again but it still gives me the same message.
If I click OK to the message it closes out of the installer completely and I can not go further.
.NET is not installed properly or the incorrect version of .NET is installed.
Please verify if the correct .NET is installed. You will need at least Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0. You can verify by checking Control Panel | Add/Remove programs and look for the program Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0. If it says something else or is a version lower then 2.0, it is possible the wrong .NET Framework is installed.
SQL Optimizer for Oracle requires at least Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0, and as of Optimizer 7.4 it will specificially check for .NET 2.0 sp1.
.NET Framework 2.0 sp1: (as of Oct. 6, 2008)
Uninstall and reinstall Microsoft .NET and reboot computer.
If working on Vista, please refer to SOL46926 SQL Optimizer will not Install on Vista. Require .NET Framework 2.0 sp1.
.NET is only required for the SQL Optimizer for Oracle install. You do not need .NET for Toad or Knowledge Xpert.
When installing Toad for Oracle, the installer comes with the install for SQL Optimizer. If you are not licensed for Optimizer you do not have to install it.
During the install, if you have Optimizer checked off to install, it will check for .NET. If it is not found, you will not be able to continue with the installation.
You can continue the install of the other applications if you uncheck SQL Optimizer in the Quest Installer Wizard. You can return to the installer later and install just Optimizer after .NET is installed properly.
