Windows error code: 4350 in hx_disk_is_dir for profbak.sas7bcat

On SAS 9.3 startup I get this error message:

 

ERROR: Windows error code: 4350 in hx_disk_is_dir for

c:\xxx\profbak.sas7bcat, This file is currently not available for use on this

computer.

ERROR: Windows error code: 4350 in hx_disk_access for

c:\xxx\profbak.sas7bcat, This file is currently not available for use on this

computer.

 

The file is there with size 0

 

I try running my autoexec file and the first libname setting crashes SAS.

 

How do I fix this?

Libraries are associated with folders generally (exceptions for certain database or spreadsheet formats). So you libname statement should look like

Libname name "C:\XXX";

 

The specific extension you show would be a SAS catalog file.

The libname that crashes is when connecting to an Oracle database.

 

I just installed Oracle 12 and updated my ODBC settings. Just my connections to Oracle now crash my PC SAS program.

 

I've contacted SAS Tech support, but have not received a reply yet.
