I don't know that this is right location for my problem. Perhaps the list admins can move to a better list.
I'm a sas user and my computer was upgraded to win 10, software reinstalled, etc, etc. Now, however when i start sas i get this message
NOTE: Unable to open SASUSER.PROFILE. WORK.PROFILE will be opened instead.
NOTE: All profile changes will be lost at the end of the session.
I used to have a (very short) list of recently used files. Not now, they're gone when i restart sas.
I pretty sure this is not something i can fix, even if i knew how. So who controls this user profile? Who do you think i should talk to in the heirarchy to get one back: Local IT, who did the sas install? University (central) IT?
Thanks, Gene Maguin
The profile (which is actually several different files) is located in the directory specified by the SASUSER system option; see the results from the PROC OPTIONS you ran earlier. There are three .sas7bcat files whose names start with "prof". Close SAS, rename those files so SAS won't find them, and start SAS back up. You may have to open and close SAS and open and close some program files to build up a file history. You might also need to rename the regstry.sas7bcat file.
This documentation is from 9.2 but I think it's all still valid:
The SAS Users Group for Administrators (SUGA) is open to all SAS administrators and architects who install, update, manage or maintain a SAS deployment.
