So I installed SAS Version 9.3 and made some customizations to make it how I liked but then the next time I opened it up it said this in the log window:
WARNING: Unable to copy SASUSER registry to WORK registry. Because of this,
WARNING: you will not see registry customizations during this session.
And the customizations I made the previous time are now gone. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

A possible cause is that you do not have write access to your SASUSER directory. Check that you can write to this directory by copying a file there using Windows Explorer. You can use the SAS Explorer to locate where your SASUSER directory is.

Plan to define sasuser where you want it
Expect to make your customisations and save and reuse them
Stop using the default install
See the paper i gave at sas global forum on customising your foundation SAS client more easily and with less risk. The presentation is also available in theTakeOut section.

If I can find the paper and if it's not too difficult then I may do it. Sometimes doing something in theory sounds like a good idea but doing it in fact turns out to be harder.

My earlier paper 237-31.pdf spoke more about customising display manager, but it sounds like you need the easy way to avoid contention between EG and base SAS for the sasuser area and this year's paper shows the easy way to that solution.

It did let me copy a file into Sasuser, so that wasn't it. And it's working now so I don't know what was wrong before but it might have been the thing about having two SAS sessions open at once, because I did do that now and then. Thanks for all the replies.
