Deploying Dell Toad for Oracle (64bit)

Extract the MSI files from the EXE.  If this link does not work, the short story is add /extract to the end of the EXE to get the MSI files

I already had the licence key from our software team.
These are the steps I created for Toad MST

1. changed the Schema to 405
2. Created a Feature and Component called CurrentUser (one inside the other)
3. Moved the Component Toad64_exe to CurrentUser Feature
4. changed the shortcut to advertised
5. created Reg key entry in CurrentUser Component
                "ToadProInstalled"="1"      (set this as Key Path)


Doing it this way, advertised shortcut will input Reg and the application will then create ProductLicenses.xml in the right location.
No need for messing around with files or injecting reg keys with reg files.
Sorry for the caps, but I copied and pasted from my dev notes, and did it this way for ease of reading.

INI file in the user profile (optional) - turns off first run questions
Add AppDataFolder as a variable in the Directory Table
After installing, I grabbed a copy of the toad.ini and settingslocations.ini files from %AppDataFolder%\Dell\Toad for Oracle\12.8\User Files and %AppDataFolder%\Dell\Toad for Oracle and used the INIFile table.
Toad.ini you only really need GaveFeedbackPrompt and I think it's FeedBackOptIn, but seen as though my install was fresh on a clean VM I used all of the SETTINGS section but made sure I changed every line that had a user path to [AppDataFolder]\Dell\{rest of path}.
SettingsLocations.ini needs to be added here also so Toad does not create a second profile path.  Make sure you use variable paths here also.
