Keep getting prompted for an Authorization key


We have Toad for Oracle 9.5 installed on our Citrix Presentation 4.5 Servers. Every time a new user launches the application from Citrix they are getting prompted to enter an Authorization Key plus a Site Message. The users are not getting this problem when the application is installed locally on their desktop computers.

We are currently using Flex Profiles at the moment on Citrix. I checked through the HKEY_CURRENT_USER section on the registry for my PC and I can't find any keys for Toad in there so I can't update my Flex Profile ini file.

Can you please help me with this?

I've not got Toad installed on Citrix myself so can't test this, but according to

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
