How do I stop or prevent the Toad Update (small icon at lower right) or the new version release notification reminder for all my Toad users (in Citrix)? I do not want my users to be notified about new version releases.
1) Start Toad for Oracle | go to View menu | Toad Options | Startup | choose "Don't automatically check for updates..." | click Apply | and fully exit Toad.
NOTE: it would be best if you do these on a new install of Toad where there is minimal user applied settings changes to it.
2) Next, go to:
C:\Documents and Settings\<YOUR_USER>\Application Data\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\11.x\User Files\
Vista or 7:
C:\Users\<YOUR_USER>\AppData\Roaming\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\11.x\User Files\
3) Perform a Copy on the "toad.ini" file. This file should now contain the "CheckForToadUpdates=2" line entry that was added by Toad.
4) Paste this "toad.ini" file in the location: C:\Program Files\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle 11.5\ClientFiles\
5) Now all "new" Toad users that initially starts Toad will not be prompted for the update notification.
NOTE: for existing Toad users where they have already started Toad previously, you will need to create some Batch / BAT file to automatically modify 'each' users "toad.ini" file to have the "CheckForToadUpdates=2" line entry. Add this entry in the sample location shown below.
