In Vista you will get the error the best way to use oracle in vista is make a virtual server system and load oracle 11g on you can use any linux or windows OS then use toad or any other tool to access oracle.

I had the same problem. In my case I've installed the Oracle Database 11g for 64 bits and TOAD only works with clients with 32 bits.

To solve this problem install a 32 bit client.
