I d/l SAS 5.0 free and tried to install on an XP/pro system, replacing SAS 4.5x already in place. It got as far as the screen where it asks for the registration code (optional for the free version) but wouldn't go past that point and kept demanding a registration code. I had to cancel the install to get out of the process. Any suggestions?
I'm glad to have found this thread. I have the same problem with Vista Ultimate 64 bit. I right clicked my SAS quick launch icon, chose properties, advanced, and checked to run as administrator. The update took after that.
