Re: SAS error

Hi kashili, I have the same problem after a fresh install - I don't understand where this is coming from?

(64-bit Windows 8, 64-bit SAS)

Re: SAS error

Do you have ACCESS model ?

To see it.

proc setinit;run;

Re: SAS error

Here is one suggestion:

launch the command prompt "as admin"

cd to C:\program file\sashome\x86\SASEnterpriseGuide\5.1

>regtasks.exe /register

Good luck

Re: SAS error

Thanks Ksharp and jwsquillace,

Ksharp - I have a variety of SAS/ACCESS features but not one that has the word 'model' after it.  Should I check the installation for one?

jwsquillace - followed the suggestion, no luck!

Re: SAS error

@pliddi, I think you can ignore the SAS/ACCESS issue. File - Import uses EG client capabilities to import data locally.
You need SAS/ACCESS if you wish to import data on the server using SAS programming.
