Updating SAS "Error creating shortcut, aborting installation" W7

Recommended Posts


Just downloaded update, and when I install, it says "Error creating shortcut, aborting installation" on my Windows 7 computer. 

I've done it several times with insanity--expecting a different outcome and being disappointed.

It just occurred to me as I type, that perhaps I should install last year's version and then update that--perhaps the update is not a full edition.

Any ideas?
