Installing in a different location is now fully supported. If the destination folder is changed from the default, all products are installed in that location. If the system is 64-bit, a folder named prefix is created for the 64-bit applications and one named 'prefix (x86)' is created for the 32-bit applications. This follows the Windows convention of Program Files and Program Files (x86).

All products should be installed using the Suite. Interactive and silent installs are supported and described in this section. Installing products outside of a Suite results in failures in the TTU products.

At the end of the install, the Teradata Tools and Utilities 64-bit bin and the Teradata Tools and Utilities 32-bit bin paths will be the only paths added to the PATH environment variable.

TTU products no longer depend on the PATH environment variable to find and locate the Teradata Tools and Utilities-dependent libraries. However, third-party applications can find TTU shared libraries and executables using the PATH variable.

Teradata Tools and Utilities package files are digitally signed.
