Windows 2003 SP1 and Demo CD to have UDF working

Hi,

I need to compile one UDF function, So I try to install visual c++ 2005 but that need SP1 of windows server 2003.

When I have install the SP1 teradata DBS doesn't start anymore "memory read error in application.."

Must I do anything to get teradata working with SP1 or is there any free compiler that I can install to have UDF working without needed to have install SP1 ?

Thanks you,

Mica Hallin

You may be getting an access violation when Teradata attempts to execute some generated machine code. SP1 implemented a new memory protection feature known as "Data Execution Protection".

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/875352

In order to run the demo, you will need to diable this feature. (I believe the regular release is now compatible with DEP.)

Edit c:\boot.ini, look for "/noexecute=" and change the parameter value after "=" to "alwaysoff". The file should like something like this:

[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=alwaysoff /fastdetect
