    2. In the left pane, select Software Library.
    3. In the left pane, expand Overview > Application Management > Packages.
    4. Right-click Packages and select Create Package. The Create Package and Program Wizard is displayed.
    5. In the right pane, add information to the following text boxes:
      Text Box Value
      Name The name of the package you are creating (for example, TTU Base 16.00)
      Manufacturer Teradata Corporation
      Language EN
      Version 16.00
    6. Select the checkbox labeled This package contains source files. The Set Source Folder dialog box is displayed.

    9. Click Standard program.
    10. Click Next. The Standard Program section of the Wizard is displayed.
    11. In the Name text box, enter the name of the program. For example, enter TTU Base 16.00.
    12. In the Command line text box, enter the following command:
      • batch_filename "PRODUCT"

      where batch_filename is the name of the batch file on the root of the software repository

      and where PRODUCT is a set of parameter values associated with the products you want to install. The parameter values, including a set of strings you can copy, are found at: Product Parameter Values for Use With Batch Files.
      Important: If the batch file you enter into the Command line text box contains a command to execute silent_install.bat, do not add PRODUCT parameter values to the Command line text box. An example of a batch file that contains a command to execute silent_install.bat is the file named Deploy_TTU.bat mentioned in Creating a Batch File to Install the Products. This file already contains a list of PRODUCT parameter values.
      Command Example 1: Install all products that are part of the Base suite:
      • silent_install.bat "BTEQ,FastExport,FastLoad,JMSAM,MultiLoad,NamedPipesAM,OLEDBAM,Preprocessor,SQLA,TDAdmin,TDNETDP,TDWallet,TPTBase,TPTStream,TPump,WebsphereAM,TDGeoSpatial"
