I'm running the following script in a vmware Windows2003 image with PC
SAS 9.1.3 on a single intel processor laptop.
The script should "spawn" 3 sessions on the same machine where the main program runs.
The 3 sessions should run in parallel (asynchronous).
I tried autosignon=yes; but still encounter the same issues.
There is an explicit signon in the code I provided so I don't really understand the point of adding the autosignon option.
I could imagine that multithreading doesn't really work as there is only one processor - and even though it's a dual-core processor it could be that the VM ware image runs on only one core. Just theory - but it's at least some kind of explanation.... Running very similar code in a multi-processor Unix environment works fine and the tasks run in parallel.
I still don't understand why the files stay locked even after an explicit signoff.
