Toad for SQL Server 6.8 - Editions Installation Guide

Installation

Install Toad Editions

Note: Your license key determines the edition and will enable the functionality accordingly. In many cases, if functionality is disabled within Toad for SQL Server Edition, you may not have an appropriate license to use it. When Toad is running, you can see which components are licensed by selecting Help | About.

You can install any or all of the products that are included in your Toad Edition using the Quest Software Installer.

To install a Toad Edition

  1. Run the Toad Edition installation program.
  2. Accept the License Agreement.
  3. Select the products you want to install and click Install.

    Caution! When installing Toad using the Quest Software Installer on Windows 7 64-bit, Program Compatibility Assistant may appear with “This program might not have installed correctly” message. Select This program installed correctly to continue installation.

    Note: For more information on Edition products or Toad components see corresponding Installation Guides.

Install Toad on Citrix Systems

Toad for SQL Server must be installed on the Citrix server by the Citrix administrator. Users then connect to this instance through their Citrix login.

Note: Limited testing has been performed for Citrix XenApp™ 5.0 support on Windows Server® 2003 and Citrix XenApp 6.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2.

To install Toad for SQL Server on a Citrix system

  1. Connect to the Citrix Environment as an administrator.

  2. Copy Toad for SQL Server to the Citrix server, if needed.

  3. Start the Toad for SQL Server installation process.

  4. During installation, select the Anyone who uses this computer checkbox when prompted.

  5. Repeat steps 2 through 4 for each server in the Citrix farm.

    Note: Although you must install Toad for SQL Server on every server in the Citrix farm, you only need to publish Toad for SQL Server once.

  1. Review the following considerations regarding licensing:

    • A license supplied by an administrator always overrides a user-supplied license in a Citrix environment.
    • If you need to provide the same Toad for SQL Server functionality to all users, you can enter the default license key for all users.
    • If you have users with different license requirements (for example, some have Standard licenses and others have Professional licenses), individual licenses should be entered for each user. You should not enter the default license key because it enables all functionality in Toad for SQL Server.

Notes for Toad for SQL Server Users

Trial Keys

The commercial version of Toad for SQL Server comes pre-installed with a trial license key for your convenience. This allows you to use the application while waiting for your commercial key to be delivered.

The trial license key remains active for the designated trial period, even after you enter your commercial license key (the splash screen may continue to indicate your application is a trial version). This is helpful if you are previewing an upgrade or an advanced module.

Important: When installing commercial Toad for SQL Server bundle after trial Toad for SQL Server bundle, the commercial bundle recognizes a license key from the trial bundle and expires the same date as the trial bundle's key. To continue working with the commercial bundle please input a valid (commercial or new trial) license key.

If you entered your commercial license key and do not require the trial version, you can delete the trial key.

Important: If you delete the Trial key, any advanced features not included in your purchased edition will be disabled.

To delete a trial key

  1. Select Help | Licensing.
  2. In the Toad Licensing dialog, select the License tab for the trial license key and then click Delete License to delete the trial key.
