As these gentlemen said. Smiley Happy

 

eGRC is purely meant to run on a server, not in workstations/laptops. And the answer is, indeed, the system requirements.

 

It seems to me as a great way to kill your laptop unless you have huge resources, such as +24 GB RAM. Your IT guys would not be specially happy either, I suppose. Also, it is not an easy deployment, especially if you have not installed SAS solutions before: metadata, all compute specifications, connections to databases, different web applications and post configurations...

 

Technically, it is possible, especially if you won't deploy the Visual Analytics Administration and Reporting part, only pure EGRC. I did it, it works. But also please consider I deploy SAS almost more than I breathe. It is my profession Smiley Wink

 

Problem is, of course, one of the requirements is to have as well an extra database (Oracle, MS SQL, etc).


Are you willing/skilled enough to maintain all of that by yourself?

 

Also, you might find a challenge: you will need an special SAS license, that will allow you to install on Workstation mode, not Server. Not sure if your SAS license will cover that, it needs to include all the components in a license file that ends in _Wrkstn, not just WX6 (windows server).

Here is a link to the system requirements for SAS EGRC:

Meeting all of the requirements to do a standalone install on a single laptop looks severely challenging...I doubt it is possible or even worth attempting.

Transporting an ISO container on a bicycle looks easy in comparison.

Hi,

Thanks for your replay. As per your instruction i installed oracle as my database . I installed the egrc with the  windows installation licence other than the windows server licence. My system is only 8 gb ram.so it is little bit slow,but it is not a big issue.Thanks for your help.
