About this download

The .NET Data Provider for Teradata is an implementation of the Microsoft ADO.NET specification. It provides direct access to the Teradata Database and integrates with the DataSet. .NET Applications use the .NET Data Provider for Teradata to load data into the Teradata Database or retrieve data from the Teradata Database.  

For Visual Studio 2017 you will need to download the Integrated Help package and/or the VS 2017 Integration package if you wish to use these features.

  • For the VS 2017 Integration features, simply download the file and execute it. Microsoft Edge changes the file extension from VSIX to ZIP. You must rename the file back to VSIX to execute it. VSIXInstaller.exe is part of Visual Studio 2017 and VSIX extension should already be associated with VSIXInstaller.exe. 
  • For Integrated Help, unzip the file to a temporary directory and then use the Help, Add and Remove Content menu to install the help. Use the Browse [...] button near the bottom of the dialog to select the extracted helpcontentsetup.msha file, then click Update.

For older versions of Visual Studio the main package will install the integrated help and Visual Studio integration features as part of the main package install, if requested.

The Teradata Developer Tools for Visual Studio is available from the Visual Studio Gallery. The release contains a query tool that enables queries to be composed and executed against a Teradata Database. Queries are composed using a custom editor window with intellisense capabilities. Separate windows are used to display results and history.
