Prior to the installation

This installation guide is provided by SAS Denmark as part of a unique way of

packaging, distributing and installing our software to students in Denmark and

Iceland. The software used is official software, however it has been modified in an

unofficial manner to reduce the size of it. Therefore, you might experience things that

deviate from our official documentation which can be found at support.sas.com.

Read this carefully

First, make sure you have the correct files. If you had a choice between downloading

the 32-bit or 64-bit version of SAS, make sure that your operating system

corresponds to the version downloaded. You can check your Windows environment

by following this Microsoft article

How to determine whether a computer is running a 32-bit version or 64-bit version of

the Windows operating system

The screenshots in this guide are from a Windows 7 64-bit installation. Certain

screenshots and names of paths and files and might differ slightly from yours. The

names which will be referenced in the rest of the document are:

- Installation files:

- License

SAS_Software_Depot.part1.exe

SAS_Software_Depot.part2.rar

(the files above are connected and should reside in the same folder)

SAS93_99L19Z_70084989_Win_X64_Wrkstn.txt

- Software Depot

C:\SAS_Software_Depot

- File names in general

If you are wondering why we are referencing Install.bat or license.txt and you

only see the file names without ".bat" or ".txt" it is because file extensions for

common file types are hidden on your computer. If you wish to enable them, follow

this Microsoft Article:

Show or hide file name extensions

Before you start the installation, it is recommended that you close any applications

that are already running. This is primarily because there is a chance that you will

have to restart the computer along the way. Moreover, antivirus programs running in

the background can cause problems as they may e.g. lock files needed during the

installation.

Extracting the software

You are now about to extract the installation files. If you keep the default setting, the

files will be extracted to C:\SAS_Software_Depot.

Run/double-click SAS_Software_Depot.part1.exe

(In certain cases it might be necessary to right-click and select Run as

Administrator)

Select Extract

The following window appears and the extraction process takes a while.

When the window disappears, you have finished extracting the files.

Navigate to where you saved the license and select it. Click Open

Select Next

For most users you can use the "Recommended" option which uses Java 6 update

24. Select Next

If you wish to use your own Java, the default paths are:

Win64: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6

Win32: C:\Program Files\Java\jre6

Wait for this window to finish. It will continue automatically

The Installation now starts

Depending on your computer, Stage 1 may vary. The installation of the system

requirements may take some time, and multiple reboots may be required along the

way.

If you get this prompt, just press OK. NB: Save your work as it will reboot your

system.

Page 10/14/


On some occasions, the installation doesn't remember the options selected after a

restart. You will then see the window below. In that case, the best option is to select

Cancel

Yes

Go back to the Install section (page 6) and run Install.bat again.

anything. When the installation is complete, you will have the choice of proceeding.

Select Next

Select Finish

Page 12/14/
