Before you install Teradata Tools and Utilities software, always compare the versions available from the following resources:
  • Teradata Software Server
  • Teradata Developer Exchange
  • Installation media (DVD)

In general, software on the Teradata Software Server will contain the most recent point release of a software product, followed by Teradata Developer Exchange, and finally the installation media.

The 15.10 release is not compatible with any previous release. The main installer will provide the option to remove any pre-15.10 release before installing 15.10. If not removed, the pre-15.10 release will not work properly, and the 15.10 release also may have issues.
