To renew the SAS license file for SAS 9.3, follow these steps:
- Close SAS.
- Select Start > Programs > SAS > Utilities > Renew SAS Software.
- For Microsoft Windows 7 and Microsoft VISTA operating systems, right-click Renew SAS Software and select Run As Administrator. If a User Access Control dialog box appears, click Allow. Otherwise, proceed to step 4.
- Browse to the SAS installation data (SID) file on your machine. Select the file and click Open.
If you did a standard workstation install of SAS, this file will be located in C:\Program Files|SASHome\licenses
Note: The default SID filename is SAS93_123456_site#_operatingsystem.txt, where 123456 is the unique order number for your site, site# is your 8-digit SAS site number, and operatingsystem is the valid operating system for the SID file.
- Click NEXT.
- Verify the operating system and SAS products and click OK.
- Click RENEW.
If the license renewal is successful, the following message is displayed:
The setinit was applied successfully.
If it is not successful, the message indicates so and displays the location of the SETINIT.LOG file. Review the SETINIT.LOG file in a text editor to check for errors.
