Registry error while using SAS 9.3

[ Edited ]

*VERSION - SAS 9.3 

*OS - Windows 7
*Problem - I use 3 SAS sessions, but when I open the one marked as SAS2 I receive a warning:
WARNING: Unable to copy SASUSER registry to WORK registry. Because of this,
WARNING: you will not see registry customizations during this session;

Also, I had customized the toolbar by adding one more icon and that icon is not there when I open new sessions.

Please help me to get it resolved.

Re: Registry error while using SAS 9.3

Your customization data resides in a catalog within your SASUSER library. To work with that, SAS needs exclusive access to this catalog.

So any additional session after your first one will not be able to access the customizations.

Setting your SASUSER library to readonly will most likely fix your problem.
