I just installed SAS 9.3 on a Windows 7 pc and everything seemed to install smoothly but at the end when I tried to open SAS I got the following error message:
ERROR: The SASHELP Portable Registry is missing or corrupted.
I can't find any help on this error for SAS 9.3, only earlier versions.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you can still open SAS, you can take the code in this SAS Note and submit it to correct the problem: http://support.sas.com/kb/10/239.html
If you can not open SAS, make sure that when you went through the install process that you followed these steps:
If you did not (for example: close the anti-virus software) try the installation again following the steps above. If you still have problems, open a track with SAS Technical Support to help diagnose this further. http://support.sas.com/ctx/supportform//createForm
Have a super day,

Update: turns out that it was nor working because I installed the SAS software before creating the Software Depot.
