2 things you can do:
1) switch to 32-bit vista (business / ultimate)
2) or wait for a new version of SAS supporting 64-bit windows

I just need to know what is the difference between SAS server and SAS
installed on a server (windows).
Is that, SAS installation for Desktop different from SAS installation
on server? And if different then in what way.
I have SAS installed on the server and that is being used by 4 people.
Are these all profiles the same or the rest three users getting a
temporary profile to use.
If all the four are using the same dataset then is it possible to make
them available at the same time. Is it that SAS will lock it if once
is already using it.

Chandra - this isn't my expertise area - I'm sure others may have better
ideas but I'll make three comments.
If your datasets have a large number of variables, in your datastep
method a WHERE clause will be more efficient - the IF statement causes
each record to be fully read before it can be selected for deletion. A
WHERE clause would only read the single variable in the case of records
that meet the criteria for deletion.
where snap_dt ne "&end_dt"d;
You probably would be better off changing your data model though - my
first thought would to be to store your data as separate yearly or
monthly files and then access them with a view of the past two years or
24 months. With each month or year you would delete the oldest file and
change the view one time period forward.
*set up the data;
data time1 time2 time3 time4;
do i = 1 to 100;
do t = 1 to 4;
if t=1 then output time1;
if t=2 then output time2;
if t=3 then output time3;
if t=4 then output time4;
*three successive example views;
data filet1 / view=filet1;
set time1 time2;
data filet2 / view=filet2;
set time2 time3;
data filet3 / view=filet3;
set time3 time4;
One more thought - since the data are appended - if the file is not
reordered and you have the record counts from each append - then you can

is installing SAS on his laptop. The installation proceeds smoothly
without errors, but the moment he runs SAS and tries to work in it,
the SAS window is closed and SAS.EXE is renamed to SAS.EXE.BAK in the

Did you ever figure this out. I am having the same problem and I
don't know what to do! When I change the file name from sas.exe.bak
it works for a minute or so, but then it automatically renames back to
sas.exe.bak. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I have never seen this or heard of this before! But during
installation SAS recommends that you disable any anti-virus software
in the machine. Could this be the confluence of failure to disable
antivirus software and something else? ~Just my 50 cents.
