SAS Pro Download to Vista

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this so please excuse me. I use Vista and at the moment I

use SAS Pro, but to get it to work I use SASSAFERUN.COM after I

SAS Free. If I download SAS Pro, I can't go directly to it as I

get Error 1606. Using SASSAFERUN.COM allows me to use the Pro,

but it would be nice to go directly to Pro instead of going to

free first. Thanks for any help.

8) I got my problem fixed. Using Vista, I have

had to try some things. I checked user privileges, and

changed my status to be Administrator instead of just

a general user. Sorry about spelling but I think you

know what I mean. This seems to have been my problem

all along, and when I have looked at forums for some

programs I use, most suggestions had to do with registry.

But being handicapped and a senior citizen, I am leary

about fooling with that. If I have any more problems

I'll read this forum first.

Thanks Seth for replying. I realized, in getting SAS Pro to

work, that the problems I had in down-loading and installing

several other programs was due to being listed as Standard

user, instead of Administrator. I just recently switched from

Windows XP to Vista, when the XP computer died. When I started

using XP, all accounts were created Administrator. But with

Vista, any new account is Standard. I never had a problem on

XP, just when installing SAS Pro on Vista. I went to User

Account on Control Panel, changed from Standard to

Administrator, down-loaded and installed SAS Pro, then

switched account back to Standard. This way I can't mess

things up. Then if I want to do something that Vista thinks

is harmful, I would have to switch to Administrator. Just a

few more steps, but it explains some things. By the way,

SAS Pro is working very good, several scans have been done,

and I'm very satisfied. I use SAS Pro, Avast Free 5.0.545,

Outpost Firewall 2009, and everything works smooth together.

Just an update, as using Vista or newer this might be a

thing we don't realize, and save on hair-pulling or using

foul language in front of the grand-kids.

It's usually the kids with the foul language when they realize that they, "Can't do nothing with this ^^$*@ standard account" :-)
