It depends on the version.

If I look atTinmesTen 7.0.5 Release notes about supported Windows platforms:

  • Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 for Intel IA-32, EM64T and AMD64 CPUs. Compiled and tested with the Intel 8 compiler. Visual C++ 6.0 and Visual C++ 7.0 (.NET) are also supported.

If I look at TimesTen 11g Release 2 Release Notes about supported platforms:

  • Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows Server 2003 and 2008 for Intel IA-32 and EM64T and AMD64 CPUs (both 32 and 64 bit)

So, the latest version will support your platform.

As a side note, I think the latest version is in the middle of being released, as the documentation is in OTN but the download link is not there yet. I hope it will arrive to OTN in the next few days...

From a post by Pascal Deliot: It's important to understand which kind of DSN you have. On an x64 system, you can create an ODBC connection(DSN) on the 32-bit side of the system or on the 64-bit side of the system. 32-bit applications will only see ODBC connections created in the 32-bit side, and 64-bits applications will only see ODBC connections from the 64-bit side. Each kind of application has is own registry. To setup DSN for 32-bit application you must use: %WINDIR%\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe and for 64-bit application you must use: %WINDIR%\System32\odbcad32.exe – gambit Jun 24 '09 at 20:06
The above post points to how to use 32bit ODBC drivers in vista 64 bit – gambit Jun 24 '09 at 20:07
