object reference not set to an instance of an object

Post by spiercey » Tue Mar 29, 2005 11:36 am

We're trying to use Quest's DB tool 'Toad' (v8.0.0.47) with the SourceGear Vault product. Toad uses the SCC API and works fine with Visual Source Safe. When Toad is setup to use Vault as its source control provider, and the request is made to log into the SCC provider, I receive the error message - 'object reference not set to an instance of an object' when I should be getting the Vault login window. Any help would be appreciated.

We don't officially support any IDE other than Visual Studio. However, this particular problem has been reported when the IDE trying to load Vault can't load the .Net Framework (which Vault uses). Is Toad written in a way that it can host the framework?

Toad

Quest software is requesting more information. Why would the Toad IDE need to load the .net framework if it's using the SCC API?

Vault is a .Net application underneath, and needs the .Net Framework in order to run.
