A Windows 7 Home Premium x64 user (French version), I used to have SAS 9.2+Enterprise Miner 4.3 installed on my computer without problem (Academic suite from my University). I have desintalled it before installing a more recent academical suite with SAS 9.3+EM7.1. I had no problem during the installation, Base SAS 9.3 runs just fine but when then 2 annoying things happened:
-I tried to launch EM 7.1 from SAS 9.3 but had the error "ERROR: This installation is licensed for Entreprise Miner for Desktop. Entreprise Miner 4.3 may not be used with this license. Enterprise Miner 5.2 or later should be used with this license."
-I then launched EM 7.1 Workstation independently but when I wanted to create a new project, entering project name and server directory, I received in Step 2 an error saying that either another programme is using this directory or SAS has no permission to modify the directory (which is strange because I am the Administrator and I allowed this precise directory to be accessed and modified completely by anything). Here is the full French message: "Cet emplacement de serveur est déjà enregistré pour une utilisation, soit par un autre projet, soit par une autre application SAS. Ou encore l'utilisateur n'a pas l'autorisation nécessaire pour créer un projet à cet emplacement. Essayez un autre nom pour votre projet, ou bien saisissez un autre chemin".
I am considerring two answers:
1/ There might be a conflict with former installed version 9.2 since there are still SAS 9.2 keys in my registry and given the nature of the errors
2/ Looking at OS compatibility (http://support.sas.com/resources/sysreq/hosts/pc/) and migration from 32 to 64 bits (http://support.sas.com/kb/44/168.html) I am afraid that I would have to install Windows 7 Pro (although this is strange since I could install and run Base SAS 9.3 and EM 7.1)
What do you think? Would you have any solution?
Thanks for your help!

Windows 7 Home is not supported with Enterprise Miner. There is very limited product support for Windows 7 Home operating system.
If you look at the chart your referenced for the Supported Operating systems, you will see that SAS only supports the SAS® Education Analytical Suite.
So you would need to upgrade to one of the supported versions of Windows 7
