Teradata SQL Assistant 7.2 install on Windows 7

We have been forced to upgrade Windows from XP to 7. We are very fond of Teradata SQL Assistant version 7.2 and want to use it also after the upgrade. But when we try to install Teradata SQL Assistant 7.2 on the Windows 7 system, it comes up with an error message telling that it is a no supported operation system.

How do we install Teradata SQL Assistant 7.2 under Windows 7?

As 7.2 version is of 32 bit, it is not compatible to 64 bit windows 7.  You can try Sqlassistant 13.10. It is latest and good in features.

We found a solution. It may not be compatible with Windows 7 64bit, but it is working any way.

We copied the installation files to the local HDD. Then right clicked on the setup file, select options, and compatibilities. Then selected run this program as, and the option Windows XP SP3.

Now the installation completed without any errors, and SQL Assistant 7.2 is running on Windows 7 64b. We have not tested on a Win 7 32b.
