I'm trying to run the following code in order to get the list of variable names and other attributes.
proc contents data <libname.datasetname>;
proc datasets library = <libname>;
contents data = <datasetname>;
These codes work fine if the datasets are in the work folder. However, if the data sets are in a library other than the work library, SAS stops working. I get an error - sas.exe has stopped working - a problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
I tried deleting the library and creating a new one. Restarting SAS, and restarting my laptop did not work either. I use SAS 9.4. Any help to resolve this issue would be very helpful.

Any crash should be reported to SAS Technical Support.. In this case, it sounds like the software was not installed correctly.
