Unable to open SAS Management Console for 9.3

Hi All,

I'm new to SAS. I've installed all the components of SAS without any error. After Installation I'm unable to open Management Console neither in ALl Programs nor sasmc.exe.

Nothing is showing even after clicking on Management Console Icon. Even if i run sasmc.exe nothing is coming.

Could you please help me.

Re: Unable to open SAS Management Console for 9.3

The smc.exe is a wrapper around java and starting a java session. Running this at Unix you are needing a X-server on Windows

running it a Windows you JPRE should be correctly working so you can build up you connection profile.  It seems you are having a Java issue/

It is possible to activate a log at the ini-file

Re: Unable to open SAS Management Console for 9.3

Which version of SAS did you install? Which java versions do you have installed?

Please follow Jaap's intructions to get more information, and check:

Your system requirements for your SAS version: SAS System Requirements

And your requirements for third-party products (as Java): Support.sas.com

Hi Jaap/Juan,

Thanks for your response.

I've installed SAS 9.3 and Java 1.6_045 Version.

I checked in Portal and found that that above Java 1.6_45 version not supported for SAS. So I need to install the recommended java veriosn in Portal.

Shall i need to uninstall full SAS,Java and reinstall SAS with fresh java version or only reinstalling of java is enough??

Re: Unable to open SAS Management Console for 9.3

Uninstalling Java is enough. You can even install a new version of Java without uninstalling the later version, then point SAS at the correct version.

In your PC SASHOME directory (probably c:\Program Files\SASHOME) you should find a file called SASSW.CONFIG. In this file there is a line that defines which Java SAS uses:

JREHOME=C:\Program Files\SASHome\jre6\bin\java.exe

Re: Unable to open SAS Management Console for 9.3

Well, the log says that it can not locate the file

C:\Program Files\SASHome\sas.java.ext.config

Therefore, or the file is not really there, or you need different permissions to access the file/files on your SASHome.

You can try to first locat the file, and if you find it, you can try to open it, it is supposed to be a text file.

If you can open it, then the problem is different.

If not, then you found the issue: the file is not existing or you don;t have rights to read it.

Re: Unable to open SAS Management Console for 9.3

As a first step, check what versions of Java you have installed, and review your environment variable settings to see which of those versions SAS MC is trying to access?
