Has anyone successfully installed Teradata Express 12 on XP SP3?

Hey guys,

I've finished installation of TD 12 expression version on my XP SP3 system. But I cannot start the database via the controller. After i clicked the "start teradata" button, the application hung and the pde status was still down. Has anyone successfully installed it on XP SP3? Please advice...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You may be running into the infamous Windows DEP feature. Look in the Windows Event Log to see if a memory access exception was logged. Check out this URL for a detailed explanation of DEP:

In order to run the demo, you will need to diable this feature.

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
