ODBC call failed error - windows 7 64 bit machine

I have installed Teradata 13.1 on a new machine. It appeared to install correctly. It is using Windoes 7 enterprise with a 64 bit operating system. When I attempt to use it I get an ODBC Call Failed error. Ideas?

Hi mates,
when posting something leading to an error, post the error message, so we can dig out what is the root cause. From the writings it seems, you have some issues with client tools/libraries/utilities or post-configuration.

When installing Teradata client tools i usually go by this order:

1. tdICU

2. tdGSS

3. tdCLIv2

4. Teradata .NET provider

5. Teradata ODBC/JDBC drivers

6. Teradata PIOM (Teradata Data Connector)

7. CLI tools 

8. GUI tools 


You have to run "ODBC" administrator (default one or that suplied by TD) within your client OS and add/configure your SYSTEM or/and USER DSN to reflect your Teradata database configuration. After you can use it. So if you are not so familiar with ODBC, you can try it via JDBC by using Teradata Studio(Express).


If you are concern about the 64 vs 32bit, do not hesitate to try 32bit (i386) packages first.
