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

...problem when installing SAS. windows x64 does not support SAS?
I am trying to install SAS on a Vista machine.
The setup wizard says that Windows x64 does not support the SAS
version I am trying to install.
What can I do?
I greatly appreciate your help.

If performance is an issue then definitely go with a web service based
approach. Web services offer synchronous and asynchronous communication.
Since web services communicate over port 80, they are secure and they are as
fast as your internet connection. Using older stuff such as ftp and telnet
are going to be slower not to mention a lot more cumbersome.
Also, going down these older paths can work but it will be a hacked up
solution and may not be supported by the IT dept over time? Why? Open ports
outside of 80 are security issues. Hence, why web services are so important.

The disadvantages of using SQL delete are (1) NOBS= is no longer
accurate, and (2) POINT= may behave unexpectedly.
If those are not issues, then the delete would be faster, with or
without an index, than recreating the data set (especially if the data
set has indexes that would need to be rebuilt).

This is a problem I have not come across before. A friend of mine
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
"Program Files" directly. Is it a problem of the Anti-Virus (McAfee
Small Business) or a virus?
Thanks in advance.

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.
