Re: Error when Launching SAS 9.4, After Installation

Thanks for the answer,

 

I have tried to follow the steps from the link, by changing SASUSER "?FOLDERID_Documents\ My SAS Files\9.4"  to  c:\users\user-ID\documents\My SAS Files\9.4, still I get the error, I tried to uninstall and reinstall again, still get the same message.

 

I've tried to follow various suggestion  from online but still get the same issue, so now I have decided to wait until see the expert to help me physically or if I will get another instructions to try alone it will be helpful.
