I have the same error. I am trying to install TeraGSS_WINDOWS_i386.12.00.00.00 onto Vista Business. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I have received the same error 1606 when trying to install TeraGSS on a Windows 2000 server. Has anyone seen this problem before? Is the version incorrect? Should I be using a different version?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Attached is a screen shot of Install Error 1606. The install for TeraGSS was performed on a Remote Server. Could that be the problem? Do you have to be physically logged on to the server to get this client to load?

Thanks,

Not sure if I solved the problem, but I got around it by using an older version of tdodbc. When I used version tdodbc_windows_i386.03.06 I did not get the problem.

I too am experiencing this problem using the 12.00.00.01 package on Windows Server 2003 SP2. After much testing, I haven't found a "valid" workaround. Sure, you can use older versions of the software, but that negates the purpose of upgrading.

I installed an older version GSS since this is less important than the ODBC driver.

I assume no fix has been out yet seeing I just downloaded the latest and have the same problem as you all reported. I also am downloading the older version of the GSS now and will try that route.

Step to install the Teradata Client ODBC

1. For installing the Teradata client you need to follow the following sequence for installing.
2. First install Teradata TDGSS
2. Then install Teredata TDICU
3. And then install Teradata ODBC Drivers.

If you get an error while installing TDGSS (Error 1606. could not access network location nt-i386\12.00.00.00\.) then follow the steps

1. Open the regedit.
2. Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
3. Go to SOFTWARE/NCR/TERADATA GSS- Delete the Folder.

Now again try to install the TDGSS

Thanks Sumit! Deleting the Reg entry worked!

This solution does not work when installing on a Windows Cloud. It is the the cloud handling of directory addresses that is causing the error. Cannot seem to find a workaround. Pain!
