When I launch or start Toad, the splash screen comes up and then Toad crashes with the following error:
Toad interrogates the registry key:
to see if the Toad online websites need to be added to the Internet Proxy exception list.
ProxyEnable should have either 0 or 1 as a value.
It may be that this key has a corrupted value.
Refresh the ProxyEnable registry key:
Another workaround is to adjust the Toad setting to not try and access the network. This error occurs because Toad is trying to access the internet and can't.
Go to View Menu | Toad Options | Startup | un-check the 2 options “Check for Toad updates” and “Download Toad Tips once a month". Disable those options | fully exit and restart Toad | launch Toad again | and then re-test the issue.
