To renew the SAS license file for SAS 9.4, do the following:
- Close SAS.
- Select Start ► Programs ► SAS ► Utilities ► Renew SAS Software.
- 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.
Note: The SID filename is in the format SAS94_order#_TSsite#_operatingsystem.txt, where order# is the unique order number for your site, site# is your 8-digit SAS TS site number, and operatingsystem is the valid operating system for the SID file. If you do not have the SID file, see the section "Obtaining a SID File," below.
- Click Next.
- Verify the operating system and SAS products and then click OK.
- Click Renew.
If the license renewal is successful, the following message is displayed:
The setinit was successfully applied.
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.
