Teradata Parallel Transporter Wizard 14.10 Issue

This is nearly the same exception issue reported upon launching TPT 13.10 in the following thread:


I just installed TPT 14.10 on a Windows 7 x64 machine, and I get a similar error as above upon launch; see the error message at bottom of post. TPT never fully launches but instead stalls on splash screen. I have Java RE version 1.7.0_40, but downgrading to JRE 1.6 did not help. Also, the permissions trick did not work for me, as it did for the colleagues with version 13.10. Any recommended solutions are appreciated.

Re: Teradata Parallel Transporter Wizard 14.10 Issue

This might be difficult, but try running with JRE 1.5.

The Wizard does not support 1.6 or 1.7.

Re: Teradata Parallel Transporter Wizard 14.10 Issue

I appreciate the feedback!

In this continuing saga:

a) It was quite an exercise locating on the web a copy of the (far) outdated 1.5 version--without having to register with Oracle. Hint: Try filewatcher.com and enter the desired file name.

b) With JRE 1.6 and 1.7 installed on my Win 7 computer, I installed the 1.5 version, too. I tried it this way, I tried it by leaving only version 1.5 installed, but no matter what Win 7 cannot locate the Java executable. That is, now the problem has shifted to getting JRE 1.5 located by the system. Unfortunately, setting explicitly the environmental variable JAVA_HOME di dnot work either, even after restarting the computer.

At this point, I have put way too much time into this without any reasonable results, and I would strongly recommend that TPT is updated to work with the newer JRE versions.

This product will be discontinued in the not-too-distant future, and so allocating resources for this tool is not currently a high priority.

Re: Teradata Parallel Transporter Wizard 14.10 Issue

Hi there, 

we tryed TPT Wizard and I see that the *.cmd is relating to such old *.jar files (from 'java\lib' as well from 'jdbc\lib') ... 

So i do not understand why:

1] the script is not taking ORACLE_HOME from windows registry as any other program, why there is hardcoded variable within the *.cmd file?

even seting via env.variables does not solve the issue, you have to put the 'set' command to *.cmd file for tptwizard.

ie: set ORACLE_HOME=c:\app\Administrator\product\11.2.0\client_1

2] the script is relating to Oracle8.jdbc drivers/classes, as I have Oracle11 or Oracle12 client installed i no longer have those classes at all...

so I just replaced few path... and delete those i do not have.

(   java -Xmx100m -Xss1m -DTERADATA_PARALLEL_TRANSPORTER_CONFIG="%CONFIG_PROPS%" -DTWB_CFG="%TPT_CONFIG_PROPS%" -DLOGDIRECTORY="%DEFAULT_LOG_DIR%" -cp jars\tptwizard.jar;jars\terajdbc4.jar;jars\tdgssjava.jar;jars\tdgssconfig.jar;%ORACLE_HOME%\jdbc\lib\ojdbc6.jar;jars com.teradata.jgui.twb.TWBGui



At that point i can run the wizard, i can generate some script, i can run them. But still facing some issues with Microsoft ODBC provider even if I am using just jdbc connection so far.

Anyway, thanks for the info, that this product will be discontinued.

Re: Teradata Parallel Transporter Wizard 14.10 Issue

Issue solved.

First, use a command window to:

1) check your Java version:

% java -version

2) check Java environmental variable:

% echo %JAVA_PATH%

3) check your Windows path:

% echo %PATH%

In my case, the latter two were not set to include the Java path, and the first would return nothing. So where did the Java path come from in the TPT wizard?

It turns out my existing Windows PATH has a subpath ;%SystemRoot%\system32 =

= C:\Windows\System32 wherein Java executables had been installed during Java installation and were being selected by default: Keep an eye on future Java updates; the problem might come back! As soon as these were removed and the above variables set, the issue was resolved.

For the following, let us assume you have JRE 7 on your PC, possibly both the x86 and the x64 versions installed. To set the environmental variables accordingly, go to

[Control Panel]\[System]

then launch [Advanced System Settings]\[Environmental Variables]

and set:

JAVA_HOME as C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin

Also, edit PATH and append:

;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\bin;C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin

Log out and back in, or restart for the changes to take effect.


Re: Teradata Parallel Transporter Wizard 14.10 Issue

My TPT wizard started working in 64 bit environment after following below steps,

1) I have installed latest JRE8 32 bit version 

2) Appended "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre8\bin;" to PATH environment variable.

3) Also make sure you have full control access to below folder structure,

     C:\Program Files (x86)\Teradata\Client\13.10\Teradata Parallel Transporter


Thank You

I have windows vista 32 bit os. I am trying to run tpt wizard but get an error while opening. I can see a command prompt run after i click it with error message - syntax error while parsing etc..

I tried the path,java_path and control methods, but no luck yet. I have TD express 13.0 and JRE 7. Any help ?
