When using the 32-bit build of the Tableau SDK 10.0 on a computer that does not have Tableau Server 10.0 (64-bit) installed, the following error occurs:

"tdeserver64.exe is not on the environment path"


  • Tableau Server SDK 10.0 32-bit
  • No Tableau Server installation (64-bit)


Option 1

Upgrade to Tableau Server 10.1 or later versions. For more information, see Upgrading Tableau Server.

Option 2

If you are unable to upgrade, please try one of the following workarounds:
  • Use the 64-bit SDK.
  • Install the 32-bit SDK on a machine with the 64-bit build of Tableau Server 10.0.
  • Rename tdeserver32.exe to tdeserver 64.exe in the following directy: <Tableau Server SDK directory>\tableausdk\bin.
The above Software Development Kit packages can be found in Tableau Help.
