To keep TOAD from asking for registration details from every user, you simply need to register it once and then copy the QSAuth11.key from "user's profile\Application Data\Quest Software\TOAD\" to "C:\Program Files\Quest Software\TOAD for Oracle\ClientFiles\". It will then copy the QSAuth11.key file when each user launches TOAD.

This worked with TOAD 9.5 (Citrix Install)/Win2003/Citrix PS4.5

This works like a charm!

Toad for Oracle versions 8.0, 8.5 and 8.6 does not support silent installations. However, Toad versions 7.6 and below, along with Toad 9.0 does have the capability of silent installation.

RESOLUTION 1:

Toad version 7.6 and below, does have the capability to run the silent install without manual intervetion with the Toad Standard Edition installation which does not have the Knowledge Xpert for PL/SQL installation portion included in the install package.

In order to run this silent install, from a command prompt type following command, this will install TOAD with all the default settings:

C:\toadstandard76.exe /s

RESOLUTION 2:

Toad for Oracle 9.0 also features the ability to configure a silent install. For detailed information about the different installation options, please see the Getting Started Guide.

Silent Install Configuration
To create a configuration file:
Create a file called install_values.ini in the same folder as the installation executable. This is the file where the installer will look to find configuration variables.

Copy the text below into the file.

[INSTALLATION]
INSTALL_TYPE=A
UPGRADE=A
INSTALL_DIR=C:\Program Files\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle9.0
NETWORK_DIR
KXPERT=A
SQL_OPTIMIZER=A
TOADSHORTCUT=YES
LICENSE_KEY=
LICENSE_MSG=

Enter the values to the right of the "=" and save the file. You can copy as many variations of install_values.ini as you'd like, but at runtime the installer only looks for install_values.ini. Do not rename the variables themselves.

Configuration Variables
INSTALL_TYPE
A - Full local install
B - Network install, client side (should install server side first)
C - Network install, server side
D - Citrix install

UPGRADE
A - New install
B - Upgrade from previous version
INSTALL_DIR
Destination folder for install

NETWORK_DIR
Destination folder for server side install
When silently installing a client/server setup the server side (install type 'C') should be run first. During the server side install, the INSTALL_DIR variable should be blank with the NETWORK_DIR variable pointing to the install path on the server. During the subsequent client side install, the NETWORK_DIR variable should remain the same, with the INSTALL_DIR variable now defined for the client side.

KXPERT
A - Install Knowledge Xpert for PL/SQL
Blank - Skip installation of Knowledge Xpert

SQL _OPTIMIZER
A - Install SQL Optimizer
Blank - Skip installation of SQL Optimizer

TOADSHORTCUT
YES - Places a shortcut on the desktop
Blank - Do not make a shortcut

LICENSE_KEY
Your Quest-issued license key number

LICENSE_MSG
Your Quest-issued license key message (site message)

Note: If this is a Citrix install (install type 'D') the LICENSE_KEY and LICENSE_MSG values will be copied to a file called 'QSAuth11.key' in the subfolder 'ClientFiles' on the server. Upon initial launch, Toad will then copy this file locally.

If performing an upgrade (UPGRADE=B) the LICENSE_KEY and LICENSE_MSG values will be ignored.

Running the Silent Install
Once you have created your configuration file and saved it in the same folder as the executable, you can run the silent install.

To run the silent install:
From the command line, run the install using this format:
C:[download folder]\ToadforOracle90Setup /S

Note: The trailing “S” must be a capital letter.

Toad for Oracle 9.1 installation will not work with install_values.ini during the install. To get around the authorisation key nagging issue, copy the old key (*.key)from the previous install to the new installation folder.

FYI - Toad for Oracle 9.0.1 has just been released.

To register TOAD 9x on all of your licensed computers and stop users getting nagged for registration info the first time they run it, register it by entering in your Authorization Key and passphrase on one computer, then copy "c:\Program Files\Quest Software\Toad for Oracle\QSAuth11.key" to the same location on the target computers (either using a transform if you're repackaging, or however you want to do it).

On a separate note, if you get "Class not registered" errors, then follow the steps here:
