SAS V5.0.1118: What happened to !SASCORE folder?

Recommended Posts

This is on Windows 7 SP1 x86 and x64 Professional with SAS Pro V5.0.0.1116 and V5.0.0.1118

When SAS is installed, folder C:\ProgramData\!SASCORE is no longer created. However it is referenced in registry keys. This folder has been in V5.0 and V4.0 for a long, long time. Wondering what has happened to it in the latest builds of SAS.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\!SASCORE]
"Type"=dword:00000010
"Start"=dword:00000002
"ErrorControl"=dword:00000001
"ImagePath"=hex(2):22,00,43,00,3a,00,5c,00,50,00,72,00,6f,00,67,00,72,00,61,00,\
 6d,00,20,00,46,00,69,00,6c,00,65,00,73,00,5c,00,53,00,55,00,50,00,45,00,52,\

 53,00,41,00,53,00,43,00,4f,00,52,00,45,00,36,00,34,00,2e,00,45,00,58,00,45,\
 00,22,00,00,00
"DisplayName"="SAS Core Service"

"Description"="SUPERAntiSpyware Core Service"
"FailureActions"=hex:01,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,14,00,00,\
 00,01,00,00,00,e8,03,00,00
"PipeName"="sascoreservicepipe"
"ServiceName"="!SASCORE"
"ServiceDescription"="SUPERAntiSpyware Core Service"
"ServiceDisplay"="SAS Core Service"
"AppDataPath"="C:\\ProgramData\\!SASCORE"

NOTE that this missing C:\ProgramData\!SASCORE occurs if SAS is first manually removed via Programs and Features and then re-installed.

That's where the core service saves its log files, if there's something to log; The folder is created when needed, but won't always be there.
