Have you resolved this ? I'm experiencing same issue with Teradata SQL ASS 12 installation on a 64 bit Windows Server 2008 R2.
The installation process confirms that SQL assistant was installed, but it is not to be found anywhere on the machine. Is there any dependances I'm missing prior to SQL Assistant 12 installation ?
hi Pregasen id love an answer to this one too, although I tried to install the 32 bit windows version and I didnt get the sql assistant to work, something to do with the .net 4 problem. No fixes released yet to resolve this issue.
My husband after discovering this not so known issue managed to get another version of SQL assistance (12.0) to work on my machine, however it will not let me connect to any databases.
So we then downloaded a Java version of SQL assistant to my pc, however this to is refusing to work.
In total frustration (after 2 weeks of trying to get the thing to work) I decided to download the VM version of the application (after downloading the vmplayer) and now it is saying it wont work on my machine.
If anyone can tell me how i can get my version of SQL Assistance 13.0 to work I would be eternally grateful.
First of all SQL Assistant (all versions) is a 32 bit application.
That said, you should be able to install it on a 64 bit Windows system as it will use the 'WOW' (Windows on Windows) feature.
(This may not apply to very old versions that were never designed for 64 bit install)
Version 13 + have very different requirements from 12.0 and earlier.
In all cases you must install the 32bit versions of the support packages. (ICU, TeraGSS and ODBC)
If you use 13.0 or higher you must also install Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0, SP1.
(14.01 requires Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5, SP1)
If you want to connect via Teradata.Net (faster and additional functionality) you must also install the .Net Data Provider for Teradata.
I would suggest you download the latest efix for the version you are installing. (I dont remember if the base versions of 13.0 or 12.0 supported installation on 64bit systems as these were 4 and 5 years ago.)
The latest versions are 14.01, 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199.
(13.11.x is for TTU 13.10, 14.01 is for TTU 14.0)
Instead of using SQL Assistant you can use Teradata Express Studio 14.0, Teradata SQL Assistant have issues on 64-Bit OS.
You can download Teradata Express Studio 14.0 from the Teradata Developer Exchange Downloads.
