fastload, mload did NOT support on win2003 x64 and win2008 x64 server ???
Product ID: B035-3119-088K Product Title: TERADATA TOOLS AND UTILITIES 13.00.00 SUPPORTED PLATFORMS AND PRODUCT VERSIONS Date Added to Web Site: May 27, 2010 http://www.info.teradata.com/eDownload.cfm?itemid=082340004&sitenm=internal
The document didn't say fastload and mload support on win2003 x64 and win2008 x64. It just indicated fastload/mload available on windows7 x64.
Did anyone explain me what the support is for window7? Is fastload/mload 32bit binary or native 64bit when running on Windows 7?
Why not available for win2003 x64 and win2008 x64 if it's native x64?
What the specific TTU 13 document you referenced is trying to convey is that the Teradata load/unload tools are 32-bit packages that run just fine on 32-bit or 64-bit systems on all the Windows and UNIX platforms listed.
The one 64-bit package we have is Parallel Transporter API (and the four load/unload OPerators). TPT API is used by ETL vendors and is loaded into the ETL vendor product's address space so we needed a 64-bit version to match the ETL vendor's 64-bit version.

Thank you for the explanation. It's clear for me now.
Do you know is there any conflict(%PATH%) on 64bit teradata odbc and 32bit TTUs on the same server?
One of the use case was using Teradata odbc(64bit) to generate data file and calling fastload/mload loading the datafile to DWH. Hope there is no 32bit/64bit library conflict when my 64bit application created process to run 32bit fastload/mload. :-)
