SAS keeps downloading definition updates.

Recommended Posts

Started SAS and checked for updates. SAS downloaded and installed the updates and seemed to work fine like always. I selected check for updates again and it said it was downloading and installing updates again. Same updates. Clicked check for updates and it did it again. Very strange. Usually when SAS is up to date it says so and no download is done. I checked on my other machine and it did the same thing.

To recreate simply update. When the update finishes select update again. It will update again even though it's up to date.

Problem is fixed on my end. Everything is up to date and corresponds with the numbers on the SAS home page. Checking for updates again works as it should. SAS informs me I am up to date and no down load happens.
