ERROR: User does not have appropriate authorization level for library SASUS

Upon installing SAS on Windows 7 64bit, the standard user tries to open the application and gets the following message. Please let me know how to fix this issue. Thank you.

ERROR: User does not have appropriate authorization level for library SASUSER.
NOTE: Unable to initialize the options subsystem.
ERROR: (SASXKINI): PHASE 3 KERNEL INITIALIZATION FAILED.

I believe this thread is in the wrong forum. This forum is intended for the interaction of SAS with Assistive Technologies like Screen Readers, Voice Recognition Programs, and Screen Magnifiers.

Perhaps you can try posting against the "SAS procedures" forum. It is much more active and someone there might have more information or be able to point you to the right direction.

"This forum is intended for the interaction of SAS with Assistive Technologies like Screen Readers, Voice Recognition Programs, and Screen Magnifiers. "

I think you have the wrong forum Smiley Wink

This was posted in "SAS Discussion Forums » SAS Macro Facility, Data Step and SAS Language Elements "

This post is a good example why we need an ADMIN formum, Requested many times but to no success...

To OP, what SAS version are you using? Does the standard user have access to the SASUSER Location?

I don't have any experience with this error, but I tried googling the error message(s) and got several hits that may be helpful.

Based on one of the hits (SAS-L forum discussion), it may be more appropriate to ask tech support as it was realated to read permissions to one of the sas DLL's and making sure that you have admin rights when installing.
