I have a similar problem. I recently purchased a new computer with Windows 7 64 bit. I had SAS pro on my old, but did not know how to register on the free SAS I downloaded on the new until I got the message to right click on the icon. I got that message after I purchased a new license. Anyway, I now got my new license no., but every time I log on, I get the message that the evaluation period has expired, and every time I have to type in my license no.
