Since using this product Ive always been able to open multiple instances of Toad.
Lately, when opening the second instance of Toad, Im getting the following error message in the form of a popup:
Couldnt open file for connection trace. Disabling trace
This occurs each time.
I have to go into Task Manager to shut down the attempted opening of this second connection.
1. Check if Tools | SQL Trace | To File is checked, if so, Check To Output and restart Toad.
1. If the issue persists, rename theApplication Data Directoryand restart Toad. (See Additional Information below.)
To rename theApplication Data Directory:
1. Exit out of Toad for SQL Server
2.Drillto C:\Documents and Settings\<personal folder>\Application Data\Quest Software\Toad for SQL Server (version).
3. Rename the whole SQL Server (version)Application Data Directoryand restart Toad for SQL Server .
