SAS license

Hi,

I've started using Base SAS and need to renew the SAS license. I've a .txt file for license but don't know how to do renewal.

there is no option for 'Renew SAS software' in SAS folder(Start Windows-> SAS folder->utilities) or in SAS deployment manager to import the new license. 

 

Thanks.

Re: SAS license

If you have a client/server setup, the license renewal must be done on the server, using the SAS install user (as write access to a part of SASHELP is needed).

Re: SAS license

Hello,

 

in case you cannot find it on your start menu, you can always find it on [C:\Program Files\]SASHome\SASRenewalUtility\9.4.

Also, now the trend is to use the SAS Deployment Manager. Therefore C:\Program Files\SASHome\SASDeploymentManager\9.4\sasdm.exe and the option to renew the licenses.
