Unable to Update SAS

Recommended Posts

Running SAS 4.26.1007 and trying to update to 4.27.x. When I rightclick the sys tray bug, and check for updates, it tells me there's an update available for download and install. However when I click it, I get the message that 'the update must be done from an account with administrator privileges'. I'm the ONLY user. What gives?

I didn't hear anything from SAS, so I switched users to Administrator, went thru the rightclick on bug sequence, and downloaded/installed the latest update. Then I rebooted, coming up with my user id. SAS still shows 4.26.1007! Would the SAS gurus please tell me how to update the engine?

Here is a solution for you.

1. Download SASUninstall.exe from the link below and save it on your Desktop.

2. Download the latest version V4.27.1002 of SAS PRO from the link below. Save it on your Desktop.

3. Double click on the SASUNINST.EXE icon and confirm that you want to remove SAS. It will require a reboot.

4. Once rebooted, install the latest version of SAS PRO.

- Activate SAS PRO with your license key

- Set up all your options and preferences

- Run Update to ensure that you have the latest updates.

5. Run a Complete Scan of your system

6. You can then remove SASUNIST.EXE and the SAS PRO installer icons from your desktop if you want.

Siliconman01,before I read your post, I decided to give it one last try. Under my own User ID, I went thru the sequence in my first post. THIS time I was able to install SAS 4.27.1002! I didn't change anything on my end, so I suspect SAS may have tweaked something in the installation package. Also, I ran a scan, and SAS was able to remove tracking cookies WITHOUT asking me to reboot! Another change in SAS behavior which the powers-to-be haven't acknowledged in these forums (but it's a good change)...
